Walton Miller Award nomination Reminder
 
The deadline for nomination is Monday October 16, 2017.
 
Who do you know who is a role model for process safety commitment? Maybe it’s someone who has tons of talent and has given countless hours of time over their career to advance process safety. Perhaps it’s a person who is the “go-to” person whenever a serious issue arises.  If someone comes to mind, consider nominating them for the Walton Miller award. 
 
The Norton H. Walton / Russell L. Miller Award recognizes outstanding achievements in and contributions to chemical engineering in the fields of loss prevention, safety, and health.  Its objectives are to encourage the continuation of such contributions and to enhance the visibility, recognition, and value of the Division within AIChE.
 
The winner is selected based on their accomplishments in 3 areas:
 
The nominee's outstanding accomplishments in the application of chemical engineering principles to loss prevention, safety, or health-related activities.
 
The nominee’s service to the American Institute of Chemical Engineers both at the national and local section levels.
 
The nominee’s service to other organizations in the cause of loss prevention, safety, and health. 
 
Additional detail on the selection criteria can be found on the nomination form.  The nomination form and a list of past winners can be found at the following web address:
 
 
There are probably 10 or more deserving people out there who need you to submit an application on their behalf. While having a single point of contact for the nomination is best, the information included often requires input from a small team. Talk to colleagues and discuss who may be a candidate for nomination, then start assembling information for the nomination. It takes some effort to develop a solid nomination, but the recognition of those who have given so much to the cause of Process Safety and Loss Prevention is worth it.
 
Nomination forms/packages should be sent electronically to:
