Bob Musser

2016 Distinguished Service Award

Bob Musser

This year’s recipient started his FAPPS and NAPPS career in the early 90’s. At his first FAPPS annual meeting, in 1993, Chuck Taylor was elected President and a total of 15 people showed up for the annual meeting. Our recipient has been involved in both FAPPS and NAPPS at some level of service ever since.

Our recipient didn’t grow up as a process server. He has worked as a manufacturing engineer building assembly lines and programing robotic controls. During a nine year career in the Navy, he served in the engineering department on submarines and taught electronics and logic at the Naval Nuclear Power School. But since 1988 his business and his service to FAPPS and NAPPS have been focused on helping private process servers thrive.

His service to FAPPS has been long and distinguished. He has served as our vice president twice. He has served as our FAPPS President for two years. He has served as a director and a committee chair many times, and has served on countless committees over the years.

He has even served as the FAPPS administrator. He built the FAPPS membership database and wrote the admin program that lets me keep membership information current. He built the FAPPS website that has served us since the 1990s. His company still hosts the FAPPS membership database and website at no charge to FAPPS.

As your FAPPS President, he established the committee and wrote the first set of Policies for the FAPPS distinguished service award. He also established the Formal Education committee and helped shape the Accredited FAPPS process server designation. He has served on the Promotion and Growth committee, the Convention Committee, the website committee and the Elections committee. At many past conventions you’ve seen him as the Jeopardy host, and the banquet MC.

He’s not exactly slowing down. His latest effort for private process servers is the Secure Document Trading Service. What started as a committee effort at the NAPPS level turned into a project that our recipient and his company decided to build and furnish to NAPPS and state associations as a free service.

The Award reads:

Spirit of a Leader

A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the quality of his actions and the integrity of his intent. Leaders, like eagles, don’t flock. You find them one at a time.
