Award nominations – they might be a lot of hard work and the chances of winning might seem slim, but as Wayne Gretzky said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” In the past few months, I’ve received e-mails soliciting award nominations from several organizations,. How do you decide what nominations to go for? One nomination stands out and should be one that you highly consider: the IACET Awards!
In July 2010, leading the way for Urban Engineers, Inc., I took a shot and submitted an award nomination form! At that point, we had been an IACET AP for a couple of years and already saw a tremendous improvement in our training program because of our AP status – so much so that we wanted to apply. Thankfully, we were recognized that year for our accomplishments as an Approved Provider – with the 2010 IACET Exemplar Award for Internal Training. It was such an honor, and one that we continue to appreciate and uphold the standards of a high-quality continuing education program.
What have been the benefits?
So…..What are you waiting for? IACET is excited to receive your nominations!
IACET awards honor deserving individuals, innovators, projects, and programs that have significantly contributed to the field of continuing education and training. IACET members are invited to submit self-nominations or nominations for other individuals and/or AP programs. The deadline for nominations is Friday, June 5, 2015.
