Criteria and Guidelines for Awards
PAC has identified key areas of interest for the Alumni Awards. To qualify as a nominee, the committee considers the following criteria:
- Demonstrate a record of excellence in the field
- Exemplify the current mission and vision of SFCM
- Provide an inspiration to the SFCM community
- Require approval by the PAC and the SFCM President
The PAC calls for nominations from the SFCM alumni community every fall, requesting a formal statement of nomination with a brief rationale and a resume or narrative career outline. An individual cannot nominate himself or herself.
