or instructor of CPS at any level receives any remuneration for his
efforts. Volunteers who
provide the administrative and instructional services that enable CPS to
function receive only one, formal token of their efforts, a “Merit
Mark” for each year of service to the aims of the group.
Each merit mark earned by a member represents at least twenty
hours of time and attention. For
instructors, it indicates the preparation and delivery of at least three
two-hour lectures during the year.
Many officers and instructors give much more than twenty hours in
a year to the cause of CPS
but one merit mark, per year, is also the maximum as well as a minimum
of formal recognition for their efforts.
