Award of Merit
To recognize individual exceptional commitment on the mission of AFCEA education, in 2005 the AFCEA Educational Foundation established the Special Award of Merit. This award acknowledges the outstanding accomplishment of an individual who has contributed to one distinctive and noteworthy aspect of the educational mission of AFCEA. The recipient will have exhibited an indispensable contribution to the success or endurance of an undertaking or experience that has significantly impacted the role of AFCEA within a community or organization.
Candidates for this award are accepted from AFCEA chapter presidents, Educational Foundation and AFCEA International board members, executive committee members, and AFCEA International senior staff members.
The Educational Foundation board of directors selects the recipient by consensus agreement. The award is presented at an AFCEA major event.
The Special Award of Merit may not be conferred every year. In exceptional cases, a second award can be bestowed. Learn more.
