Accepting Award Recommendations

We are thrilled to announce that we are accepting IGCS Members' recommendations for potential recipients of IGCS' 2024 organizational awards through April 25.

Opening award nominations to the general membership contributes to our goal of enhancing the transparency of our organizational award selection process, fosters inclusion and diversity, and puts the power in the hands of our community to help us identify those who best represent the IGCS mission. As our membership continues to grow and diversify, we need your help to learn more about the good work being done all over the world.

We encourage you to actively participate in the recognition process and tell us about the remarkable work and achievements within our diverse community!
