The Board Representative for each chapter shall be asked to obtain from the membership of their chapter three nominations for each award each year. These nominations shall be submitted to the chairman of the Awards Committee to arrive no later than 12/31 of the year prior to the year the award is to be presented. At that time the committee will convene by mail/phone/email and select the three best candidates by number of ballot and/or outstanding qualifications. The Awards Committee will present the lists of the three best candidates for each award to the Executive Committee who will vote to select the final winners from these lists. The Awards Committee Chair will then have the plaques made up and make arrangements for the presentation of the awards at the next annual membership meeting.
