About the Achievement Awards

The IEEE Life Members Affinity Group Achievement Award is given annually to 10 Regional Life Members Affinity Group (LMAG) and one global LMAG to recognize those substantive projects or achievements that have left an undeniable imprint on the fabric of IEEE Life members operations or the IEEE Life Members Fund.

The award will be based on the programs that took place during the period of 1 January to 31 December of the preceding year. One award will be granted annually; however, the award need not be awarded each year if there are no suitable recipients.
