SOCMA President’s Leadership Award

SOCMA’s President’s Leadership Award provides a forum to highlight and recognize exceptional member input and service in one of two categories:

Excellence in Service – Awarded to a member company that has significantly contributed to the growth of the organization and benefited the member value proposition.

Excellence in Advocacy – Awarded to a member company that has been influential in the passage of rational laws and regulations benefitting the chemical industry and/or increasing public confidence in the chemical industry.

Application and Evaluation Process:

All SOCMA member companies’ employees are eligible.  A company colleague, committee member, member of SOCMA’s Board of Governors, or SOCMA staff may nominate an individual(s) for an award. No self-nominations are permitted.

The President’s Award is NOT necessarily given out each year.  Limit one award winner per Category.

A letter supporting the nominee’s application describing why the individual deserves a particular award must accompany the completed award application.  Relevant supplemental information may also be included as part of the nomination package.  A description of each award is located at the end of this package.

Completed applications for all awards must be received by September 15, 2016.

The Executive Committee of SOCMA’s Board of Governors will determine the honoree.  Award recipients will be determined by a blind evaluation and notified by November 1, 2016.

Award Recognition:

The recipient(s) are honored at SOCMA’s Annual Dinner. Recipient(s) will receive free registration to attend.
