Nominations Sought for IAC Non-Flying Awards
By Allyson Parker-Lauck, IAC Awards Chairman, IAC 15590
Each year at the U.S. National Aerobatic Championships, the International Aerobatic Club presents five special non-flying awards. The nomination period is now open for IAC members to submit nominations for the Robert L. Heuer Judges Award (judging excellence), the Frank Price Cup (outstanding individual in aerobatics), the Harold E. Neumann Award (excellence as a chief judge), the Kathy Jaffe Volunteer Award, and the Curtis Pitts Memorial Trophy for Innovative Design. These five prestigious awards will be presented at the U.S. Nationals awards banquet. Nominations are based on the significant contributions of individuals for their achievements according to the criteria of the award in the previous contest year, 2010.
A complete history of each award may be found on the IAC website along with the lists of past recipients, pictures of the master trophies, and nomination petition. Nominations are welcome from either individual members or collectively as a chapter. Chapter meetings are a good forum to discuss potential candidates. The nomination deadline is June 15, 2011. For more information, please see the above website or contact Awards Chairman Allyson Parker-Lauck at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last year, the Robert L. Heuer Judges Award went unawarded due to a lack of nominees! Let’s prevent that from happening again this year! I look forward to seeing your submissions.
