Nominations are being sought for the 2010 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 1 February 2010.
During the evaluation process, the following criteria are considered: substantial impact on IEEE goals and objectives while a staff member, considerable impact on the success of a number of IEEE initiatives, and proven 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.
Any IEEE volunteer may submit nominations with the exception of IEEE staff and members of the IEEE Awards Board, IEEE Board of Directors, and Herz Award selection committee. Individuals in that group also may not endorse candidates.
