Recognize Excellence and Submit a Nomination in the SBE Awards

April 18, 2018
By

Nominate SBE members and chapters for the 2018 SBE award season. Consider your chapter and chapter members when you think about these awards. There may be an individual in your chapter who has been an outstanding engineer, educator or mentor for new broadcast engineers. Recognize that person by nominating him or her for the Robert W. Flanders SBE Engineer of the Year or the James C. Wulliman SBE Educator of the Year awards.

This will be the sixth year that the Chapter Engineer of the Year award is nominated by SBE Chapters. Each chapter has the opportunity to nominate one of their own members. Chapter s are ecouraged to take this opportunity.

The SBE Freedom Award recognizes an individual or group that has performed extraordinary service to the United States through the use of media technology. The SBE Technology Award recognizes the person, group or company that has developed innovative new technology or systems for media technology. Maybe someone you know has written a notable technical article or presented a technical paper at a meeting or program. These are a few of the awards that are presented each year by the SBE.

Of the 13 awards that are presented each year, the local chapter or SBE members nominates for 10 of them. Many SBE members are highly qualified and deserving of recognition. Likewise, many chapters do an excellent job promoting the ideals and goals of the SBE. Please nominate these members and chapters so they can receive the recognition they deserve.

Find all the details on the SBE awards at sbe.org/awards. If you have any questions or need more information, contact Certification Director Megan Clappe at mclappe@sbe.org or SBE Awards Committe Chair Jason Ornellas at jornellas@sbe.org.
