The IEEE AESS Outstanding Organizational Leadership Award

This award, established in 2007, is to recognize candidates that have the unique capability of conceiving and organizing innovative and successful events in the field of interest of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS). The winner of this distinguished award receives a commemorative plaque and a $1000 honorarium.

The AESS is currently seeking nominations for this award. The nominee shall be the proponent and/or the organizer of a pattern, or a focused single event in AESS's fields of interest. The candidate does not have to be an IEEE or AESS member; however, the event must qualify as one approved by the AESS BoG.

Factors that will be considered in the judgement are: innovation in content and/or organizational approach; constructively bringing together industry, academia and government; visionary events that lead to new AESS services and/or advances in the fields.

The award will be presented at any one of the AESS sponsored conferences, based on the recipient's availability, but preference should be given to those conferences that host the twice-yearly Board of Governors meeting.

Nominators shall prepare and submit a candidate nomination package 30 November 2017. In addition to submitting the nomination package to the Chairperson of the AESS Outstanding Organizational Leadership Award, the nominator shall solicit 3 to5 endorsement letters to be sent to the Chairperson.
