Voting for this year’s Member’s Choice Awards is now open. The Member's Choice Awards recognizes those individuals who have demonstrated exceptional leadership as decided by someone who knows them best — you!
There are many wonderful things about being awarded the Member’s Choice Award — peer recognition, an amazing trophy, bragging rights, and an incredible evening at a black-tie gala just to name a few. But the most unique aspect of the Member’s Choice Awards is the voting system. Unlike other ISA honors and awards, your vote will determine the honoree.
How the Voting Works
It’s simple. One person one vote every 24 hours. Yes, you have the opportunity to vote once a day, every day during the voting period for your favorite candidate.
You’ll find a list of nominees and a summary of their achievements online at: http://www.isa.org/memberschoice.
A running tally of votes at the online voting site will let you know how your candidate fares compared to other nominees in that category. Votes will be tallied and the nominee with the most number of votes at the close of the voting period wins.
All Member's Choice Awards winners will be honored at the 51st ISA Honors and Awards Gala to be held 4 November 2013 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in downtown Nashville, Tenn., USA.
Voting for the Member’s Choice Awards will continue through 31 May 2013.
