Member of Geographic Areas Awards and Recognition

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Date:

Deadline for nominations is October 15, 2010

Abstract:

Call for Nominations – Recognizing Outstanding IEEE Volunteers and Contributors

You can help recognize the efforts of outstanding volunteers by nominating someone for one of the prestigious Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) Awards. Each prestigious award has a unique mission and criteria and offers the opportunity to honor distinguished colleagues, inspiring teachers, and corporate leaders, for their member engagement initiatives.

If you know someone who has made substantial contributions to the MGA Mission (Inspire, Enable, Empower and Engage Members of IEEE) at the local level, through innovative projects, exemplary leadership, service, or by fulfilling the goals as related to transnational activities, consider nominating them for one of the following awards:

In addition to these individual MGA Awards, MGA also presents Friend of IEEE Member and Geographic Activities Awards, which specifically recognize support provided to IEEE and its members, in support of its goals, by firms, divisions of firms, or individuals. Nominators can submit Individuals or Organizations for Friend Awards, and awards can be earned at the Supporting or Sustaining level. Please complete the Online Award Nomination Form. There is no deadline for these awards, which are presented throughout the year.

The two most recent IEEE Winnipeg Section Award recipients were Stephen Dueck and Dawn Nedohin-Macek in 2006 for their contributions to the IEEE Gold Affinity Group.

Please e-mail MGA Awards with any questions about the MGA Awards and Recognition Program.
