National Leadership Awards

National Leadership Award honourees from 2016

Call for Nominations – 2017 National Leadership Awards

Last year, three new honourees were inducted in the CIP Society’s Leadership Circle: Paul Martin, CIP and Robert Pearson, FCIP in the established leader category, and Laura Van Vliet, CIP, CRM in the emerging leader category.

We look forward to extending this prestigious recognition to more honourees this year with the announcement of the call for nominations for the 9th Annual CIP Society National Leadership Awards.

Begin the nomination process

Now there’s an easier way to jumpstart the nomination process. Starting on March 1, 2017, you can visit the CIP Society's National Leadership Awards webpages to complete an online candidate assessment and submission form for a leader in the emerging or established leader category. This pre-nomination process (1) enables you to quickly assess your candidate on the leadership qualities that the awards program defines as leadership in the industry. In this way, before you complete the full nomination package, you can find out if your candidate meets the high standards set out by the Leadership Awards. And this pre-nomination process (2) enables us to see if others are also considering your candidate - therefore providing nominating supporters; if your candidate has been an Institute volunteer - thereby possibly engaging the volunteer manager in support of the nomination; if you have identified the appropriate category for your candidate; and if your candidate is a member in good-standing of the CIP Society. 

With these preliminary checks in place, the CIP Society will then forward you the fuller nomination package to complete. The package includes a fillable PDF form, which asks you to substantiate the ways in which your candidate meets the criteria of the program through their accomplishments and contributions, and to support your nomination with additional letters of support. To help facilitate the nomination process we will provide a handy nomination guide and be available to offer advice along the way.

We highly recommend nominators start early. Nominations close on June 1, 2017. Contact us if you have any questions.
