The Chapter Board is now accepting nominations for the 2020 V. Lee Conyers Award. We encourage Chapter members to nominate fellow members and colleagues who have made significant contributions to the GWDC, ISACA, and the IT audit, security, control, and governance professions in the Greater Washington, D.C. area.
All nominations must be submitted by May 3, 2020 and a selection committee comprised of the current and former GWDC presidents will choose this year’s recipient. The award will be presented at the 2020 GWDC Annual General Meeting.
The criteria used to evaluate the nominations include the following:
- Criterion #1: Indicate whether nominee is a GWDC member
- Criterion #2: Contributions to the GWDC and/or ISACA International/ITGI
- Criterion #3: Contribution to the IT audit, security, control, and governance profession
A nomination form must be completed for each nominee. The nomination form requires information regarding the nominee and the person submitting the nomination. Please provide a brief narrative of the nominee’s contributions to adequately address each of the criteria categories.
If you have any difficulty completing the form or questions about the nomination process, please contact Jason Yakencheck, the GWDC President.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
