Honors & Awards

Committee Outstanding Service Award

The Outstanding Service Award is an acknowledgment made by the ASME IGTI committees to their committee members who have made significant contributions in terms of personal service to the committee and its operations. The intent of the award is to recognize those individuals whose selfless support of the committee, over the past year, has served to maintain the character of the committee in a manner consistent with its operating procedures, goals and functions.

The Award is made once per year and is presented to the recipient during the annual committee meeting at ASME Turbo Expo. If there are no suitable candidates nominated, there will be no award for that year.
