(Distinguished Service Award)
What is a DSA?
The Distinguished Service Award, (“DSA”) was created to honour individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the Canadian Condominium Institute or the condominium community either at the chapter or national level. It is a national honourary designation to be awarded to those deserving individuals who, by their volunteer work or other achievements have brought distinction to CCI, exemplify the standards that CCI promotes and serve as a positive role model for others. It is important that, as their peers, we recognize these friends of CCI for the time and effort they have contributed to our organization and community.

DSA Designation is proposed for those who do not fit any professional category. The nominee can only be a non-professional who is not eligible for ACCI. The National Board has the right and ability to present exceptions to the rules where warranted and agreed to by the Board.
In making your nomination or when considering a nomination made from outside of your board, we urge you to keep in mind the purpose of the DSA. Many volunteers will be deserving of recognition for their efforts but the DSA is reserved for only those who stand head and shoulders above the rest. It is important, therefore, that nominees truly meet the very high standard we have set in order to keep this award meaningful. Please remember that it is not necessary to nominate someone for a DSA every year. Local chapters are encouraged to establish their own programs for recognizing the efforts of their volunteer members.
For your assistance we have created the following guidelines for choosing and nominating individuals within your chapter or community for the DSA:
