Circle is only awarded for creative, distinct, unusual service - 25 or so have been awarded total.
I know that they're for different tracks, but I was referring to the geometric progression in the shape. (I have an arc, from 1997, and that's as far as I'll get.) Circles have been awarded at three of the Conventions I've attended. Everyone holds her breath as they announce who will get a circle....or as they say that no Circle will be awarded.
I'd still be interested in a chart or listing of other NPC alumnae awards because I like seeing how the exoteric (=outward) symbolism is used.
