Recommendations for both awards
Services to regional and national Mensa be given
consideration, but be weighted less than service to Chicago Area
Services in remote areas with little activity be given
relatively greater weight
Length of service be given equal weight to number of
services. Example: Candidate A provides one service for 10 years.
Candidate B provides 2 services for 5 years each, sequentially. A
& B are equally qualified.
Services be rated by the value of the benefit to the
membership or the critical nature of the work done.
