The Camille S. Abood Distinguished Volunteer Award shall be presented to a member of the Ingham County Bar Association who has distinguished himself or herself by making voluntary contributions of time and talent for the benefit of others.
Consideration will be given to any volunteer service, whether or not it happens to involve the Lansing area community. A long-term commitment to public service is a very influential factor but is not a prerequisite to receipt of the award. The award is intended to honor attorneys for volunteer efforts and, therefore, should not be awarded on the basis of any services performed for monetary compensation. The services to be recognized may or may not be law-related, but they should indicate a significant commitment to voluntary service.
The award shall consist of a plaque or other suitable memento presented to the recipient, as well as the inscription of the recipient’s name on a large plaque maintained in the ICBA office or other suitable location.
