Nominee eligibility

The Employer Professional Development Award is given to organizations for contributions to employee continuing education and professional development.

A previously awarded employer is eligible to be nominated again after three years. However, nominations that include previously awarded projects should not be included without significant improvement.

Members and non-members of IEEE are eligible to serve as a nominator of this award. The nominator may be affiliated with the employer, but it is not required.

As specified in IEEE Policy 4.4.H, Eligibility and Process Limitations, individuals serving on any board or committee involved at any stage of the recipient selection or approval process for an award shall be ineligible to receive or act as a nominator or reference for that award. This conflict of interest limitation shall apply to all awards given by the IEEE or any of its organizational units.

An individual can only serve as a nominator or reference for one award per category.
