Darlene Gerber, Region 18 president, presents
Lifetime Gold Award to Paul Jeremiah II

Paul E. Jeremiah II, member of the Akron AITP Chapter, received his Lifetime Gold Award at the Chapter's 50th anniversary meeting, which was held at the Tangier in Akron Ohio on October 28, 2003. Paul has been a member of AITP since 1970, and has earned 900 Individual Performance Award points. He is currently serving his 30th year as a chapter director. He has had many years of AITP service, including service as: chapter president in 1977; chapter secretary; Region 18 president in 1992 and 1993; region director representing the Akron Chapter for 10 years; Region Merger Committee in 1992; Region Conference Committee chair in 1995 and 1998; and current student chapter coordinator and assistant treasurer.

Frieda Jeremiah, Paul's mother, who just celebrated her 100th birthday, was in the audience to see Paul receive his award.

During the awards ceremony in St. Louis, George Koscho awarded a Gold Lifetime IPA to Ellen Mahoney (more than 900 points). Ellen is a long-time, very active member of not only the Milwaukee Chapter, but also of Region 5, serving in a variety of positions.

George also presented two Lifetime IPA's, one to Tony LaCrosse, who is also from the Milwaukee Chapter and is the current Region 5 treasurer. Tony has been region president several times, has been a member of many association committees and has served in just about every position in the Milwaukee chapter.

Michael L. Welch was the second recipient of the Lifetime IPA. Michael is a long-time member of the Capitol chapter. He has served as chapter liaison for many years and has been on numerous chapter, region and association committees.


IPA awards for AITP members have been designed to reward active members. They are based on a point evaluation of various activities ranging from the local chapter, the Region and the Association. The individual is recognized for the contributions made to the success of the Association, efforts on behalf of fellow members and development of the member's professional status.

IPA awards recognize individuals' merits and recipients will be well-regarded in the years to come. The levels of IPA and the points required are as follows:
