Proctor of the Year awards
In honor and recognition of Dr. Abbie F. Salny’s years of service as American Mensa’s Supervisory Psychologist, three awards have been established.
Proctor of the Year, is awarded annually to outstanding Proctors. Established in 2000 and best known as the Abbie, the award is given to members who are ambassadors of Mensa, make test sessions enjoyable, test regularly, show originality about testing, and are conscientious Proctors.
Testing Coordinator of the Year, is awarded annually to outstanding Testing Coordinators. Known as the Dave Felt Award, this award is given to the Testing Coordinators who help encourage new proctors, find test sites and show originality in advertising, and promoting testing.
The Dr. Salny Award for Outstanding Service in the Area of Testing is awarded to a person or Local Group exhibiting exceptional service in the area of testing. These awards are given by the Testing Team. Regional certificates may also be awarded.
Contact the National Testing Officer for more information on these awards. Annually, the national Testing Team reviews and updates criteria for the Proctor & Testing Coordinator of the Year awards.
