PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION AWARD

It can be one incident or several incidents that show that this technologist has made a difference in their workplace.

 

The award, consisting of a certificate, will be presented to the member either at the annual general meeting of the NLCMLS or at an appropriate time at the technologist's workplace. Nominations may be submitted by members at-large and each nomination must be accompanied by a citation outlining the incidents for which the nominee should be considered for this award.
