The nomination deadline is May 30th of each year. Because of the timelines we must follow, no nominations will be accepted after this date (unless the committee makes a special request for clarification purposes). Award winners will be notified by approximately June 1st of each year, and will be invited to the awards presentation ceremony at the annual conference in July. It is the nominator's responsibility to demonstrate in a 1-2 page written statement to the Awards Committee why the person nominated is deserving of the particular award. The letter of nomination must be accompanied by the nominee's up-to-date vitae. Letters of support are encouraged but not required. Nominators are encouraged to carefully review criteria for each award and demonstrate how the candidate meets said criteria. The Awards Committee will determine who, if anyone, will receive awards in a given year.

Nominations are encouraged by someone other than potential recipient. Self-nomination is permitted but corresponding letter(s) of support must be accompany materials.

NCPEID members can nominate more than one person per year; however, each nominator can only nominate one person per award category. Past recipients cannot be nominated for an award that they have previously received. However, past recipients can be nominated for awards in other categories.
