The Awards Program is an effort to highlight the unique contributions our members make to the Agency and our Organization, both nationally and regionally. Nominations will be accepted from any PWC member. Nominations shall be in writing and contain appropriate supporting documentation including background, work history and PWC mission correlation. Awards will be presented only when qualified candidates are found and may not necessarily be awarded each year. Award nominations shall be submitted to the Vice President, postmarked/emailed no later than February 15th. All awards will be presented at the PWC National Training Conference. (Note: Only the President may nominate an Honorary Member. The PWC Board of Directors will determine the selection of the nominee.)
