The MSA Executive Board recognizes several prestigious awards, presented at the Annual Conference
PETER W. WALSH AWARD
In 1978 Mr. Peter W. Walsh of Oakland, California donated a bronze sculpture to the Maintenance Superintendents Association. Ronald Herron, a world-renowned sculptor from Helena, Montana, created this original work of art. The sculpture depicts the various phases of work a Maintenance Superintendent is involved in on a daily basis. The Peter W. Walsh Award is the Association’s most prestigious award.
STELLAR VENDOR AWARD
In 2014, the Vendor Reps on the E-Board initiated a new award for Vendor Members of the MSA and named it “Stellar Vendor of the Year”. Each year, all chapters are encouraged to select a worthy Nominee. The Stellar Vendor is the Association’s most prestigious award that can be bestowed on a vendor.
The first Founders Awards were presented on August 28, 2008 at the Conference in Sacramento. This program has become an annual event designed to recognize MSA members who have performed outstanding service to the MSA, their communities and/or a heroic act. There is also a category for chapter excellence. Any member in good standing may nominate anyone or any Chapter.
LEGACY VENDOR AWARD
In 2020, the Executive Board approved a new award for Vendor Members of the MSA and named it “Legacy Vendor Award”. The purpose is to establish an award that recognizes individual Vendor Members for their service to the Maintenance Superintendents Association for a minimum of 15 years.
SFBA Chapter Awards
