Volunteer Recognition Service program
PEO has introduced a new recognition program to recognize the service that volunteers provide to the association. The efforts of volunteers result in many accomplishments and contribute to the operation and success of PEO.
The Volunteer Recognition Service program recognizes volunteers who have served on chapters, committees/ task forces and PEO Council, and celebrates achievements of milestone years of service. The recognition pin is awarded to recognize five, 15, and 20 years of service. The Engineers Canada Fellowship pin recognizes 10 years of service. A special sterling silver pin is awarded when a volunteer has 25 or more years of service.
