Nominations are being sought for the 2009 IEEE Eric Herz Outstanding Staff Member Award. The award goes to a present or past IEEE staff member with at least 10 years of service for his or her contributions to the goals, objectives, and success of IEEE. The deadline for submitting nominations is 30 January 2009.
Candidates will be considered on three criteria: their impact on the goals and objectives of IEEE while a staff member, the success of their IEEE initiatives, and their leadership in staff activities.
The prize consists of a certificate, honorarium, and travel expenses to attend the presentation of the award at the IEEE Board of Directors’ last meeting of the year.
Any IEEE member may submit nominations with the exception of members of the staff, IEEE Awards Board, Board of Directors, and the Herz Award selection committee. This group of individuals also cannot endorse candidates for the award.
