Service Awards

Current Award Program

In order to reflect the modern industry, the Market Development Committee recommended and the NAAB board approved changes to the award program to recognize Years of Service.   It is also acknowledged that being an A.I. technician is a physically challenging profession and recognition should be granted at 15 years of service.  Following are the new awards that will be recognized:

15 Year Technician Award:  Awards are issued for A.I. Technicians that have completed 15 years of specifically A.I. Technician Service work.

20 Year Award:  Awards are issued for a person completing 20 years of service to the A.I. industry.

30 Year Award:  Awards are issued for a person completing 30 years of service to the A.I. industry.

40 Year Award: Awards are issued for a person completing 40 years of service to the A.I. industry.
