Awards Nomination & Application Information

ACCI has a robust awards program to recognize research, service, and education in the Consumers Interest. There are a variety of awards, each with their own history and nomination process. Some awards are invited lectureships and all are managed by ACCI Members who volunteer to serve on the Awards Committees. Not all are awarded every year. Members are most welcome to volunteer to serve on a committee. Contact the ACCI Office to volunteer. Calls for nominations are announced in the fall of each year and are due in December of that year.
