Award Categories for Organizational Units

There are six possible awards for OUs. They are:

Outstanding Small Section (<501 active members as of April 30, 2017)
Outstanding Large Section (501 or more active members as of April 30, 2017)
Outstanding Small Student Branch (<26 active members as of April 30, 2017)
Outstanding Large Student Branch (26 or more active members as of April 30, 2017)
Outstanding Chapter (includes Technical Councils and Affinity Groups)
The Women in Engineering and the Life Members Activity Group have their own separate awards categories.

Outstanding Section awards

Region 6 has two different Section awards (large and small) because a small Section has fewer volunteers and cannot compete with the number of activities of a large Section. We encourage all Section to separately submit a nomination for their section to the MGA awards website by the same date: May 15, 2017. Please note that the MGA divides their Section awards into three sizes: Large, Medium, and Small.

The Region 6 Outstanding Section description and criteria are:

To recognize the outstanding work of an IEEE Section based on its success in carrying out the objectives of the IEEE through the implementation of the Section’s programs. In this evaluation, recognition will be given to the successful maintenance of ongoing efforts designed to sustain the basic core activity of the Section and its components as well as recognizing innovative and creative efforts to develop and implement new programs or new entities such as Chapters, Councils, and Affinity Groups.

The IEEE MGA specified criteria are:

for their successful efforts in fulfilling the educational and scientific goals of IEEE for the benefit of the public by maintaining, enhancing, and supporting the Student Branches, Technical Chapters, and Affinity Groups within their geographic boundaries.

Outstanding Student Branch Awards

Region 6 has two different Student Branch awards (large and small) because a small Student Branch has fewer members and cannot compete with the number of activities of a large Branch.

The student officers are usually chosen in early September when classes begin. Many officers leave the following June when they graduate. Therefore the activity period upon which they will be primarily judged is their school year from Sept. 2016 up to the nomination submission due date which is May 15, 2017. If there are continuing projects from the previous Spring, the nomination form may include those projects.

These two awards recognize Student Branches which represent the IEEE and encourage participation in extracurricular activities that further the development of the students as future engineers. Some of these activities are meetings in which faculty or outside lecturers are secured to share knowledge and experience about preparing for jobs after graduation. Other lectures might be on topics that are highly interesting to students such as electric vehicles, worldwide communications for internet, sensor technology, or biomedical applications. Occasional fun parties such as pizza, bowling, and hiking can help students bond with each other and relax from the pressure of their studies. Some Student Branches have dedicated rooms for their activities and they may stock food or beverages for their members. The outstanding Student Branches take on research or development projects as a group. Often the Student Branch is the only means for engineering students to learn how to actually solder and construct working circuits. For example, some projects might be related to microprocessors and some might be building radios.

The nominations from the Student Branches are judged by

  • the number of meetings and activities
  • the number of students actively participating
  • the success in carrying out the objectives of the IEEE
  • innovations and creativity of their project

Outstanding Chapter

To honor an outstanding Chapter, Council, or Affinity Group each year. Extraordinary performance greatly benefits the members of your Section. It attracts non-members to attend its meetings and events and encourages them to join the IEEE and that Society. It benefits industry and society in general by providing leading edge educational programs. This year we have created separate award categories for Women in Engineering and Life Member Affinity Groups so they no longer compete in this award.

There are many good Chapters but only a few outstanding ones. We want to motivate Chapters, Councils, and Affinity Groups to strive to be outstanding. Therefore the bar for this award is high. The following list is the requirements to apply for this award:

  1. A minimum of 8 meetings per year.
  2. A webpage that is updated at least monthly so all information is correct and up to date.
  3. A growing membership. It does not matter if there are 15 members or 1000. What matters is that it is growing, and not shrinking.
  4. A positive balance in their bank account. It does not matter if it is $250 or $50,000 as long as they have enough to sustain all of their expenses and meetings on their own without asking the Section for financial aid.
  5. A high quality annual report to our Section Excom.
  6. There should be an active effort to invite and engage university students in the technical area of the Chapter and this shall be documented.
  7. Organizing an annual conference or educational day is a plus.
  8. Filing of their meeting reports and financials with the Section and IEEE by or before the deadline, completely, and accurately.
  9. If a Chapter wins this award at the Section level, they must wait two years before applying again.

Nomination and Operational Suggestions

The best Chapters have an active liaison program with industry. They attract both audience participation from those companies and they attract knowledgeable speakers for lectures and panels. Some chapters get companies to sponsor their food in exchange for a table at the meetings where the company can show their products. Some Chapters, Councils, or Affinity Groups even obtain financial grants to their organizations. This can help fund conferences and workshops.
