Call for Nominations for the Harry T. Eidson Founders Award

By Jim Nolan • April 28, 2017 • 0 Comments
Each year, ASPPA recognizes up to two individuals — one ASPPA member and one person outside of ASPPA — by honoring them with its most prestigious awards, the Harry T. Eidson Founders Award. First given to Edward E. Burrows in 1995, the Eidson Award recognizes significant contributions to ASPPA and/or the private pension system. Other past recipients are a “Who’s Who?” among pension industry leaders.

The ASPPA Leadership Council selects the recipients of the Eidson Award from a list of nominees. In making its selection, the LC considers the following criteria with regard to a candidate’s contribution:

  • The contribution must be consistent with the ASPPA mission statement and should have a lasting, positive influence on ASPPA or the private pension system.

  • The contribution may be current, one that spanned many years, or one made years ago from which ASPPA or the private pension system benefits today.

  • The contribution should be a result of time devoted above and beyond reasonable expectations and not a result of time spent primarily for personal gain. The contribution may have been made and/or recognized on a national or regional level; however, publicity is not a criterion.

Do you know someone who you think exemplifies these characteristics? If so, the ASPPA Leadership Council would like to know about it. Nominating someone is easy. Simply click here and complete the online nomination form.

The LC will review all nominees and select the individual who best embodies the qualities that inspire this prestigious award. The recipient will be recognized at the ASPPA Annual Conference in October.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your nomination.

Jim Nolan is ASPPA Vice President.
