Gold Probe Award Winners

Congratulations to our many Gold Probe Award winners over the years! 

The Gold Probe Award is a two part award sponsored by Synoptic Products and Ballet. The first part is an annual plaque presented to an electrologist to recognize a person who, in her many years of professional practice, has many significant contributions at both the state and national levels. The second half of the award is a generous contribution by both Synoptic Products and Ballet to the AEA itself to aid its efforts to further the electrolysis industry.

While the award is sponsored by Synoptic Products and Ballet, the awardee is nominated by AEA members and selected by the American Electrology Association Board. If you would like to nominate someone for this distinguished award, please contact the AEA board.
