Awards and Recognition
Congratulations 2016 INMM Award Recipients
INMM Awards Program
Each year the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management recognizes the hard work and success achieved by nuclear materials management professionals through the following awards.
The Vincent J. DeVito Distinguished Service Award (DSA), named for the Institute’s long- time Secretary, recognizes individuals who have made long-term, noteworthy contributions to the nuclear materials management profession. Eligible candidates are not required to be INMM members, but are expected to be internationally recognized for their contributions to nuclear materials management.
The Edway R. Johnson Meritorious Service Award (MSA), named for a former INMM President and Technical Division Chair, recognizes individuals who have provided long-term, outstanding service to the Institute, as well as made noteworthy contributions to the nuclear materials management profession. Eligible candidates are required to be members in good standing of the Institute.
The Charles E. Pietri Special Service Award (SSA), named for the long-time Chair of the Technical Program Committee, recognizes individuals or organizations who have made a specific, noteworthy contribution to the Institute. The award can also be given to an organization that has advanced the knowledge and effectiveness of the nuclear materials management field. The eligible organization does not have to be a Sustaining Member of the Institute in order to be considered, however, eligible individual candidates are required to be active members in good standing of the Institute.
The Early Career Award recognizes members of the INMM who are 35 years of age or younger (as of the date of the nomination deadline) and who have made a singular outstanding achievement or a series of notable achievements in an area of nuclear materials management relevant to the Institute and its technical divisions. Candidate’s notable achievement must not be related to work performed in pursuit of an academic degree. In the case of a series of achievements, work related to a degree may be considered. The notable achievement or series of achievements must be accomplished by the nominee while a member of the Institute. The nominee must be the sole or main contributor to the notable achievement. Candidates must not have already been a recipient of the Vincent J. DeVito Distinguished Service Award or the Edway R. Johnson Meritorious Service Award. Eligible candidates are required to be active members in good standing of the Institute.
To be considered for an award, individuals must be nominated by their peers. The nomination is submitted to the INMM Awards Committee for its recommendation and then to the INMM Executive Committee for approval. To nominate a candidate for any INMM award, please use this nomination form and provide the following materials:
- Name of the award for which the individual or institution is being nominated.
- Name and address of the nominee, including title if nominee is a person, or former title if the individual is retired.
