OPEIU Service Award Pins are awarded in January following your anniversary date. For instance, if your anniversary date is April 2, 2003, and you wish to request a 15 Year Pin, you will be eligible for your pin in January 2019. Service Pins are not automatically mailed to the membership. If you wish to receive a Service Pin, a request must be placed. If you are requesting your pin after the January 16, 2019 Membership Meeting, your request will be filled the following January. All members who have requested and received Service Pins will have their names listed in the March-April 2019 "The Professional Pen" newsletter.
