 2012 Distinguished Service Contributions Award

Donald M. Truxillo, Portland State University

Dr. Truxillo exemplifies a career of dedicated service to SIOP. He began as a program committee member reviewing papers for the annual conference and has played major roles in the success of the conference since serving as Program Chair-in-Training in 2002. A year later as Program Chair, his leadership led to several innovations that included introducing the “interactive posters” concept, further developing an “editorial board” of reviewers, and completing the electronic submissions process. During his years of service he was instrumental in several more innovations, including programs to welcome new members to the conference and special “howto” sessions. He was conference chair from 2004–2006, and during that time helped introduce the Communities of Interest, the Junior Faculty Consortium, and the Doctoral Consortium Reunion. He works tirelessly behind the scenes on behalf of SIOP, having served on the Executive Board and currently as Chair of the International Affairs Committee. SIOP has truly benefited from Dr. Truxillo’s high standards of service.
