The Stephen E. Bemis Memorial Award is jointly sponsored by many of the nation's major assessment and testing associations. The purpose of the award is to recognize and honor an outstanding individual who demonstrates the qualities of Stephen Bemis. You can see the criteria for the award HERE<http://www.ipacweb.org/Resources/Documents/Bemis_Award_2014.pdf>.

Last year the award was presented to Brian O'Leary at the IPAC conference in Columbus, Ohio. This year the award will be presented at the IPAC conference in Denver, Colorado July 21-23, 2014.

We are asking IAPC listserv participants to recommend an individual who demonstrates all three of the following attributes: (1) An accomplished personnel measurement practitioner who is recognized for his/her on-going commitment to the principles of merit and fairness; (2) A professional who has made an impact in the field by his/her practical contributions(s) that have either resulted in an improved or new procedure; and (3) A concerned individual who is recognized for his/her commitment to assisting fellow practitioners, being available to them, and freely calling on them.

Please send nomination recommendations, along with a paragraph supporting each attribute above, to Dennis Joiner at joinerda at pacbell.net<mailto:joinerda at pacbell.net> by Friday, March 28, 2014. Dennis will compile and submit all recommendations to the IPAC Board for review in the April Board meeting.

There are many human resource professionals who are doing great work for our profession and who are emulating the characteristics of Steve Bemis summarized above. I encourage you to give some thought to this and help us identify at least one worthy individual to nominate. The IPAC Nominee does not need to be an IPAC member.
