Awards and Recognitions

The Awards and Recognition Committee (ARC) is composed by a Chair and at least three members are appointed by the President for a term of 3 years (with the prospect of renewal), with the consent of AdCom. The Administrative Vice President is an ex-officio voting member of the committee.

The ARC should recommend nominees for the awards established by DEIS. Moreover, the Committee will address other potential awards to be established by the Society. AdCom may also request the Committee to consider the establishment of other Professional or Student Awards.

Current Chair of the Awards and Recognition Commmitee is Dr. Greg Stone.

Procedures for Nomination and Selection of Award Recipients

The Awards and Recognition Committee will solicit the nominations of candidates from members of the society, including timely announcements in the IEEE Insulation Magazine, and/or on the DEIS website, and/or via other appropriate electronic forums.

For a nominee to be considered by the Awards and Recognition Committee, their nomination must be supported by at least two Society members, who are required to submit supporting material to the Committee. The Committee will then make recommendations to AdCom for approval. If no suitable candidates can be found by the Awards and Recognition Committee, AdCom will be so informed. 

One or more candidates may be selected by the Awards and Recognition Committee. If more than one is selected, a ranking will be given in submitting the recommendation to AdCom.  AdCom may elect to grant no awards in a particular year. AdCom may also recommend that one or several nominees be reconsidered at a later date.

Each award shall be granted only once to a specific individual.
