What is a Merit Mark, and why do

Power Squadron members receive them?

A “Merit Mark” (MM) is awarded by the chief commander to a member for substantial personal effort in furthering the interest, programs and objectives of USPS, its districts and squadrons. It is a coveted award; it is by and large the only official recognition members receive for their efforts.


Only one merit mark may be awarded in a year to a member, no matter how extensive the contribution. Five merit marks bring senior member status and 25 merit marks accord a member life membership, exempt from national dues. We are greatly indebted to our members for their service!
