AIPG Honors and Award Review Process
The AIPG awards committee reviews each application for consideration based on the comparison of the applicant's record to the description of the award. Each application is presented and reviewed by the awards committee, discussed, and voted on by the full committee. A majority vote is required to grant the award. The awards committee reviews each application thoroughly. In some years the committee decides that a particular award will not be made. If this is the case, the applicant may be re-considered the following year.
If in any year the awards committee does not find a nominee whose contribution merits the award, it may recommend that no award be made. The awards committee submits its recommendations for each and every award to the AIPG National Executive Committee for final approval. Detailed information on why an applicant is approved or not for an award is held confidentially by the committee and only available to the AIPG National Executive Committee.
