NACE NEWS 74 MAY 2015 MATERIALS PERFORMANCE NACE INTERNATIONAL: VOL. 54, NO. 5 NACE International 2016 Award Nominations Sought through June 2015 S ince 1947, NACE International has recognized members who have made significant contri- butions to the knowledge and understanding of corrosion sci- ence and engineering and for service to the association. As the organization continues to grow—with more than 35,000 members in 146 countries—it is critical that the many talented and hardworking members who are active in the association receive recog- nition for their invaluable contributions. The NACE Awards Committee has been collecting nominations for the 2016 awards and will determine the recipients to be honored during CORROSION 2016. The nomination deadline is June 30, 2015. "Candidates need to be sought and proposed for evaluation by the Awards Committee," says committee member Peter Elliott. "Absent recommendations, the awards cannot be made; thus this reminder as we look forward to 2016." NACE International Awards Following are the NACE awards and their descriptions. The R.A. Brannon Award recog- nizes a current member of NACE International whose outstanding service has contributed to the development and improvement of the association that resulted in promotion of the objectives of NACE. The W.R. Whitney Award is presented in recognition of public contributions to the science of corrosion. The F.N. Speller Award is presented in recognition of outstanding individual contributions to the practice of corrosion engineering. The T.J. Hull Award is given in recog- nition of an outstanding contribution to NACE in the field of publications. The H.H. Uhlig Award is given in recognition of outstanding effectiveness in post-secondary corrosion education at the undergraduate or graduate level as exhibited by an educator who excites their students through outstanding and innova- tive teaching in corrosion. The A.B. Campbell Award is presented in recognition of the most outstanding paper in Materials Performance or CORROSION published during the preceding year.

The CORROSION Best Paper Award recognizes the best paper published in CORROSION for the preceding calendar year. The Technical Achievement Award is given for technical leadership in the practice of corrosion control or the enhancement of the profession in the areas of research, engineering, or education. The Distinguished Service Award honors distinguished service to NACE International by an individual member or group for duties, responsibilities, or assignments performed at the section, area, or association levels. The Distinguished Organization Award recognizes organizations that have made outstanding contributions to the field of corrosion science or engineering over a sustained period of time, or for a major technological contribution to either field.
