Nominations are being sought for the 2012 IEEE Eric Herz Outstanding Staff Member Award, which annually recognizes contributions to IEEE by a past or present IEEE staff member with at least 10 years of service. The deadline for submitting nominations is 31 January 2012.
Three main criteria are considered: Has the person had a substantial impact on the goals and objectives of IEEE while a staff member, and on the success of a number of IEEE initiatives? And has the person shown leadership in a number of staff activities?
The prize consists of a certificate, an honorarium, and travel expenses to attend the award presentation at the final IEEE Board of Directors meeting of the year.
Only IEEE volunteers may submit nominations. IEEE staff and members of the IEEE Awards Board, IEEE Board of Directors, and the Herz Award selection committee are ineligible to nominate or endorse candidates.
