We have formed an ad hoc committee to begin looking at all of the SAME National awards. Awards submission are due in January. Some awards like the small business awards were due in early October and were presented at the SAME Federal Small Business Conference in Pittsburgh this week. Some of the awards are for firms. Most are for individuals. Our Kittyhawk Post Awards committee is looking for which awards we have strong candidates, and beginning the process of gathering data and writing the submission. I encourage all of our members to go to the SAME webpage http://www.same.org/awards and review the awards. If you know of someone who should be nominated, nominate them or contact Jeff Leonard and we can get the candidates name to the committee and go from there.
