All About Honors

First, what is an honor?

An honor is a designation presented by a group to someone who has, through special effort, distinguished themselves in the eyes of the group.

ACCC has three honors.

They are Associate of the ACCCFellow of the ACCC and Honorary Fellow of the ACCC. Each successive title indicates more effort and thus greater honor. They are written after the holder’s name in capital letters. An example is, Nancy Sams, FACCC.

Honor’s candidates are nominated by ACCC Club Delegate or ACCC Member Club Presidents.
The criteria for these honors is amazingly simple.
The criteria are as follows:

  1. Service rendered to ACCC,
  2. Services and activities in the member clubs,
  3. Services to affiliated ACCC clubs and, finally,
  4. Actual achievement in the Art of Photography.

It is important for people giving service in these areas to keep some record to help should they be nominated. Selection is by the Honor’s Committee which has been appointed by the president.

The members are Herman Dirks, Larry Olsen, Joe Webster, Dan Dragoon and Ed Rana. The Chairman of the Honors Committee is Ella Schreiber

If you have a prospective candidate, let Honors Committee know as they will help with the nomination process. A new application form is now available that is only one page instead of three making it easier to use. Click Here to get the Honors Application Form
