GCEP Awards Program

GCEP recognizes the outstanding leadership and contributions its members have made and continue to make to the chapter and to the specialty of emergency medicine. To honor those who have served as distinguished role models, mentors, and contributors, and who have demonstrated excellence in leadership and achievement, GCEP has developed the following award categories:

The nominee should serve as a role model for Chapter members, and his/her personal leadership attributes should include, but are not limited to: inspiration, innovation, diplomacy, planning, organization, management and administration, arbitration, consensus building, and decision making.

In-Training Professionalism and Service Award

Entry Procedure

Any members may nominate a member by submitting a completed nomination form. Current members of the GCEP Board of Directors, or current GCEP Councillors are not eligible to receive an award.

Submit the nomination form online, and then send the nominee's curriculum vitae and up to 3 letters to Tara Morrison, GCEP Executive Director, at tara@theassociationcompany.com. Letters of support are greatly encouraged and are at the discretion of the nominator. All entries must be submitted by the deadline for consideration by the Awards Committee.

Judging

The Awards Committee will judge the entries, with its recommendations subject to review by the GCEP Board of Directors. The decision of the Board is final, and the Board reserves the right to make no award if there are no nominees of sufficient merit. The award will be presented at the GCEP Leaders and Directors Conference held in December.
