IEEE has awards programs at all levels of the Institute to recognize IEEE members who have contributed to our profession and our organization in any number of ways. Your local Section should have a comprehensive program that honors members of the section. The Region 3 Areas/Councils and Region 3 also have recognition programs. We should not overlook the Institute level programs. We still have an opportunity in 2004 to nominate candidates for the IEEE USA awards and for the Regional Activity Board (RAB) awards. For more information on IEEE USA, please go to their web site at http://www.ieeeusa.org/AWARDS/index.html . The deadline for these awards is July 31, 2004. RAB information is located at http://www.ieee.org/organizations/rab/rab/Awards/RABAWARDS.html,and the deadline is October 15, 2004. The procedures for nominating candidates are not complicated, and provide another opportunity to reward a worthy IEEE member.
