CSI's 2012 Honors & Awards Call for Nominations

Welcome to the Construction Specifications Institute's 2012 Honors & Awards Program!
CSI's Honors & Awards Program recognizes the talent, achievements, and notable contributions to the construction industry that support the mission of CSI. Participating in the Honors & Awards Program is a great way to let members and others in your community know they are appreciated and valued. So if your chapter hasn't participated in the Honors & Award Program in the past couple of years, this is the year to submit a nomination package!

With the tremendous success in uploading electronic submittals and endorsements last year, this process will continue again in FY12. If you didn't upload electronically last year, consider trying it this year. Not only will it save the cost of printing and mailing, you will also get immediate notification that your submittal was received so there is no guessing whether the package arrived on time.

The May 4th submission deadline sounds far off, but now is the time to start organizing and planning for the 2012 nominations. Begin by surveying chapter members and others in your community or region for those people, firms, and organizations that have made a difference in the construction industry and the mission of CSI. Then download the 2012 Honors & Awards Guide to determine the appropriate honor or awards category. The guide has a helpful matrix that makes the nomination process clear and straightforward.

To keep you informed about all the honors and awards, an email will be sent each week from now until the end of February to highlight the different awards and any applicable changes. Each chapter is strongly encouraged to develop a list of qualified candidates to submit for the numerous Institute Honors and Awards. Non-members are also eligible for several awards including (but not limited to) the Construction Technology Award, the Excellence in Construction Information (EICI) Award, the Environmental Stewardship, the Michelangelo Award, and Honorary Membership. Remember, the only way to guarantee someone doesn't win an award is to |not submit a nomination package for them.

Some key items to note for this year's Honors & Awards Program:

1. Nomination Deadline: Friday, May 4, 2012 at 5pm ET

2. Newly Revised Honors & Awards Guide: The FY12 Honors & Awards Guide has been revised with some new forms and submittal requirements. Be sure to download the 2012 guide that is posted at As always, it will be important to use the current forms when preparing any submissions.

3. Fellowship Mentoring: If your chapter is preparing a Fellowship nomination package, then consider consulting with a fellowship mentor. A list of mentors can be found at

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please email
