Important Notes on Nominations

Nomination Form is to be completed by the nominator (Section Awards Chair or Section Chair) and submitted directly to the Area Awards Chairs with a copy to the Area Chairs. Additional long resume or informational document may be submitted at the discretion of the nominator. Also, prior-year submittals may be re-submitted (updated as appropriate or necessary) for current consideration.

Supporting information on the nominee is a key ingredient in a successful nomination process. While a fully completed Award nomination form is the base requirement to submit your nominee, the inclusion of summary information (along with the form) allows the section to provide greater depth and detail regarding the nature of their nominee’s achievements and contributions. In the nomination form you will find specific mention of supporting items that can be included in your nomination submittal. When there are several competing submittals from various sections, this additional detail can be the difference.
