Rather, the award scope is sufficiently broad to recognize service made via many organizations including international institutions, governments, and/or non-governmental organizations. The award favors longstanding service, but impactful service in a concentrated period of time will also be considered. The winner is honored at the IM Division business meeting and presented with a plaque.
