Management Award

This award recognizes an outstanding individual who has made a substantial contribution to the management and leadership of engineers involved in the field of chemical engineering. Nominees should be prepared to give a presentation on an important management topic of their choice at the next Annual Meeting if selected.


  • Awards are administered by a committee of the AIChE Management Division which reviews all applications and recommends nominees for confirmation by the AIChE Management Division's Board.

OPTIONAL: The nomination process can be started by electronically submitting a CV or Resume of the proposed nominee early if you wish feedback from the Awards Committee before preparing the complete nomination package. This is an optional step and not a requirement.
