This award was instituted to recognize distinguished and dedicated volunteer service in the Society.. Candidates are nominated by the membership by a designated deadline, thus the worldwide membership takes part in the exercise. Nominations are then reviewed by a subcommittee of the Honours and Awards Committee to ensure that criteria are fully met. It is awarded to one member each year.

Members must have a minimum of 15 years of continuous service in a leadership position(s). within the society. Current members of the ISA Honors & Awards Committee and ISA Executive Board are not eligible for nomination.

Currently Billy is Secretary of the Ireland Section although he has occupied most officer positions dow the years.
