- Bicentennial Medal (2020)
- IUAA President's Award (2020)
Jerry Bobilya began working with the IUAA starting in the 1980s when he was living in Milwaukee and later in South Carolina in the early 2000s when he served on both of their alumni boards. In the most recent years, he's served as the ambassador of the Asheville, North Carolina chapter, which he helped to found, and an at-large member of the Executive Council where his personal attention and connections to others endeared him as a wise and informed leader.
In 2020, Bobilya was presented the Bicentennial Medal for his distinguished contributions to Indiana University.
