Invited Talk “Promoting Yourself: How to appeal accomplishments for member-level elevation, award nomination, and promotion in the affiliation”
Abstract: This talk presents how to appeal accomplishments for member-level elevation, award nomination, and promotion in the affiliation. There are some key considerations to maximize the chances of success when a nomination is prepared. Some recognitions provide a guideline for preparing a nomination and others are silent about it. However, basic considerations such as items to be included, descriptions of the accomplishments, and the order of presentation are common for most of nominations. Following these considerations makes the nominator/nominee confident about the nomination and simultaneously make the evaluators comfortable in the process of evaluation through easy understanding and comparison. The talk is based on the presenter’s wide experiences as a member of various award boards/committees and nominator/reference/endorser.
