IM Division Outstanding Service to the Global Community Award
The IM Division Outstanding Service to the Global Community Award recognizes continuous excellence in serving the international community. While the IM Division provides opportunities to serve the global community, this is not an award for service to our division. Rather, the award scope is sufficiently broad to recognize service made via many organizations, including international institutions, governments, and/ or non-governmental organizations. The award favors longstanding service, but impactful service in a concentrated period of time will also be considered. The winner is awarded a plaque.
▪ Nominees must have at least five years of service to the international community.
▪ Demonstrated outstanding service to the international community, over a long period of time
– may also have more intensive and impactful service over a shorter period of time
▪ Had an important impact on the service of others by developing an organization or platform
for global service.
