The SCI Distinguished Service Award is presented annually at the AGM. The award celebrates the hard work and goodwill of longer-serving Members of all component parts of SCI, where they give their time as volunteers to organise conferences, edit or peer-review the material published in our journals, share their enthusiasm, or lend their leadership and vision to sustain regional or technical group activities.
