It is common practice for the Section Awards Chair to present any nominations to the Section ExCom, in executive session with any potential awardees absent from the meeting, for review and ExCom approval which is signified by the Section Chair’s signature. Nominees are NOT normally notified of their nomination to avoid disappointment at a later date should they not be approved by the Region Assembly.
  • The Region 1 Awards and Recognition Committee may, after reviewing a particular nomination, feel it is better suited for an award within another category and may reassign that nomination accordingly.

By February 1 – The Section Awards Chair (Section Chair) should consider those individuals within the Section, who are eligible for the various categories of Region 1 Awards.

The Region 1 Awards and Recognition Chair includes a rating system for his committee to use when evaluating the individuals in the various awards categories.

At least two weeks prior to the Region 1 Annual Meeting (which normally takes place in August): The Region 1 Awards and Recognition Chair holds a meeting with his committee, in executive session, to determine the list of awardees and the appropriate citations.

At the Region 1 Annual ExCom Meeting and Annual Board of Governors Assembly Meeting (which normally takes place in August): The Region 1 Awards and Recognition Chair presents the Committee’s recommendations and provides additional information, as necessary, to the participants in Executive Session. The Region 1 Awards are voted on by the Assembly and all approved awardees are notified by the Region 1 Awards and Recognition Chair, on behalf of the Region Director and Board.
