Association Professional Awards Deadlines Announced
Sunday, January 8, 2012
Posted by: Barb Shaver, Association Awards Committee Chair
The Association Professional Awards Committee with the approval of the Association Board of Directors has set the 2012 deadlines for award year 2011 submissions to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org as follows:
- Professional Chapter Incentive (PCI) and Region Funding submissions – on or before May 31
- Chapter Outstanding Performance Award (COPA) submissions – on or before February 6
- Region Outstanding Chapter Award (ROCA) submissions – on or before March 12
- Distinguished Information Sciences Award (DISA) submissions for 2013 – on or before November 30.
The Individual Performance Award (IPA) does not have a specific deadline, but submissions must be received at least 6 to 8 weeks prior to scheduled presentation dates in order to ensure award receipt by the requestor. This is especially important for the first Lifetime IPA because it needs to be approved by the Association Board of Directors prior to placing an order.
For your reference, the deadlines for the 2011 award year for the COPA (Chapter Outstanding Performance Award) have been outlined at this Information Executive article: http://www.aitp.org/news/80632/Chapter-Outstanding-Performance-Award-COPA-Deadline-is-Feb.-6-ROCA-Deadline-is-March-12.htm. Also included is additional information concerning input to the spreadsheet.
The new website has the following path to access the COPA, IPA, PCI and Region Funding spreadsheets:
Go to http://www.aitp.org/. Sign in.
In the left navigation rail, hover over "AITP Leaders Only”.
In the sub-menu that pops up, hover over "Manuals & Forms”.
In the sub-sub-menu that pops up, click on Professional Awards.
A direct link to that page is: http://www.aitp.org/?page=Professional_Awards.
The above dates should provide the best possible service to our chapters, regions and, especially, to our members.
Please send any questions or concerns to email@example.com
