PRESS RELEASE: WEDA Announces New Young Professional of the Year Award to be Presented at the 2021 WEDA Dredging Summit
Dear Thomas Cappellino,
The Board of the Western Dredging Association (WEDA) is pleased to announce the launch of a new award to be presented at the 2021 WEDA Dredging Summit, to be held virtually from June 14-17, 2021. Despite the necessity caused by COVID19 to hold the meeting online, the WEDA Board is proceeding with the presentation of its first-ever WEDA Young Professional of the Year Award. The award will recognize a young person who has made exceptional contributions to the dredging industry, as a whole, and to the Western Dredging Association in particular. The deadline for nomination submissions is April 2, 2021.
Nominees must be 35 years of age or younger on the date of the award presentation, i.e., June 17, 2021, and a member of WEDA at the time of nomination submission. The nominees will have demonstrated special achievements and leadership in the field of dredging, contributions to WEDA and significant project accomplishments. For instance, a nominee may have played an important role at a dredging project, authored recent dredging industry-related technical/scientific paper(s), or mentored high school or college students.
All nominees for the WEDA Young Professional of the Year Award will receive a one-time one-year free membership to WEDA. The Award Winner will receive a plaque, be recognized on the WEDA website, in a press release and in an email to all WEDA members, and receive an additional one-year free membership to WEDA.
The Award recipient will be selected by the WEDA Awards Committee based upon reviewing and assessing the nominations received. The 2021 WEDA Young Professional of the Year Award will be presented during the virtual WEDA Summit (date and time of the presentation to be scheduled). The winner is expected to be available during the presentation online.
Please see the attached 2021 Criteria for this award.
Applications should be submitted by April 2, 2021 to Craig Vogt, Chair of WEDA’s Environmental Commission, at Craig@CraigVogt.com. For further information, please contact either Tom Cappellino, WEDA Executive Director at email@example.com, or Craig Vogt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
