This award recognizes individuals who have given extraordinary service to OMTA at the state and district levels and who have been members of OMTA for at least 25 years. These honorees have demonstrated excellence in their commitment to students, to OMTA and MTNA, and to their colleagues.

Honorees are recognized at the Awards Banquet at the annual OMTA Conference and receive a commemorative certificate. Their State dues are henceforth waived. State Honorary Life Membership conveys all rights and privileges of Active Membership.

For those members who have given exemplary service to their districts, but have not been active at the state level, we suggest that districts consider a similar award at the district level.

District Presidents only, please complete the following online nomination form to nominate one of your members to be considered for this award. Nominations are submitted to the Honors Committee, which will determine which (if any) nominees to present for the approval of the OMTA Board of Directors.


The deadline for nominations is February 6.
