NOMINEE’SQUALIFICATIONS FOR FELLOW
Describe the Nominee’s specific engineering, scientific, and/or leadership accomplishment(s) below. Be sure to include several sentences in the beginning of the write-up to characterize the nominee’s forte. Additionally, include the significance or impact the accomplishment(s) has on mobility technology. The accomplishments or statements are to be supported by individuals familiar with the nominee’s body of work through the reference support letters. A list of the nominee’s publications, patents, honors and awards are also to be submitted as support. If the nomination is primarily for outstanding technical leadership accomplishments in the mobility industry, accomplishments must be cited, specific details about the accomplishments given, and then this information is to be verified or confirmed by the references in their letter of support. Refer to the References section in this nomination form and also to the Nominator & Reference Instructions document.
The Fellow Committee reserves the right not to count information stated in a Bio or Curriculum Vitae when it is an attachment. Any pertinent information the nominator feels should be considered by the Fellow Committee that is contained in a nominee’s Bio or Curriculum Vitae should be included within the nomination form. It is then optional for a nominator to include a Bio or Curriculum Vitae with the nomination submittal. Please be complete yet concise. Most nomination submittals for this area would be one 8 ½ x 11 page; however this does depend upon the nominee’s background and accomplishment(s). The length may be less or over one page. (If more space is needed than what this space allows, finish on a blank page and label it as an Appendix.)
