The EMC Society has an active awards program and the nomination committee is looking for deserving individuals to honor and show appreciation for their contributions and service to the Society. The nomination committee depends upon the Society membership to nominate these terrific people since it is impossible to identify everyone around the world who deserves an award.
There are a number of different awards that are appropriate for different levels of technical contribution and/or service to the EMC Society. Please go to the Awards web site (http://www.ewh.ieee.org/soc/emcs/acstrial/Awards/index.html) and read the descriptions of the various awards. You can nominate individuals using the on-line form. If you run into any trouble please feel free to contact me, Lee Hill, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2007, the Board of Directors approved two new awards: the EMC Society Hall of Fame Award and the Sustained Service to the Society Award.
The Hall of Fame Award is intended to recognize current and past members of the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Society for significant accomplishments of a historical and/or enduring nature on behalf of the EMC Society over an extended period of time. The contributions could be of either a technical or administrative service nature, or a combination of both. The Sustained Service to the Society Award is intended to recognize current members of the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Society for significant and sustained service to the administration and the overall success of the EMC Society over an extended period of time.
All of the EMC Society awards are presented at the Awards Luncheon held during our annual IEEE EMC Symposium. During the luncheon you will get to see and meet some of our Society’s best known members, as well as recent graduates who are making fresh and exciting contributions to technology and to our understanding of new ideas. Completed award nominations are reviewed by the EMC Society Board of Directors MANY months PRIOR to the Symposium, please DO NOT DELAY. We need to hear from you NOW. I hope to see you at the Awards Luncheon in Austin! EMC
