NEW! THIS YEAR

  • External Reference: If an External Reference (Optional, but Preferred) is included for a nomination, the nominator is requested to provide a brief statement on the External Reference’s background/stature as context for the required Letter of Support.
  • Principal Publications and/or Patents: Nominators are asked to provide a brief summary of the importance of each publication and/or patent listed to provide added-value for consideration of the Nominee.

Please note the following in developing a nomination:

A CASE Member may serve as a Nominator for only one nomination and as a Reference (Member Reference or External Reference) for only one nomination. The following pertains to the references to be provided in support of each nomination:

  • Member Reference (required): Nominations require an Academy Member Reference. A letter of support (limited to 400 words) from the member reference is optional.
  • External Reference (optional, but preferred): This reference is an individual external to the nominee’s organization/company. The external reference may be, but does not need to be, an Academy member. If an external reference is provided, a letter of support (limited to 400 words) from the external reference is required. On the nomination form the nominator will be asked to provide information on the background/stature of the external reference as context for the required letter of support.

-- The Membership Committee makes decisions to name a nominee to the election ballot based on a review of the detailed nomination.

-- Members may be scanning the information provided on the “Candidate Summary” (includes name, title, organization, education, and Citation) to determine how they will vote on each candidate, as compared to reviewing a candidate’s complete nomination.

-- CITATION: It is most important that the CITATION for each nominee be concise and make the case for why a candidate should be elected – identify high impact and specific contributions of the nominee. CITATIONS are limited to 50 words.

-- Make nominations clear and understandable for those not familiar with the nominee’s field of expertise.

The Nomination Period is October 1 - November 16, 2016.  All nominations will be reviewed by the Academy’s Membership Committee. As determined by the CASE Governing Council this year, based on the 2015 Bylaw amendment,  the Membership Committee will select no more than 24 candidates to be named to the Election Ballot. The Membership Election will be held electronically from January 17 – February 14.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the nomination process or information required.
