86 PCB007 MAGAZINE I DECEMBER 2018 should be especially appreciated by those who use the finished documents. Each year, a number of these documents comes to fruition and is published—often af- ter several years of work. The completion of a document is a momentous occasion for those who have been working on it ("We're final- ly done!"). IPC has made a practice of recog- nizing committee leaders and volunteers for their work completing standards and specifi- cations—and for other activities within the or- ganization—at the committee luncheons dur- ing IPC's spring and fall meetings. According to IPC, the two categories include [1]: 1. Committee Leadership Awards are presented to committee chairs upon the completion of a standard or specific program. Any chair is eligible. This award can be given more than once and can also be presented to an outgoing chairman who has made contributions over a period of time. 2. Distinguished Committee Service (DCS) Awards are presented to IPC committee members who have made an exceptional contribution to a specific standard or program. Any person who is actively involved on an IPC committee is el- igible, except members of the board of direc- tors. This award can be given more than once. Exceptional contributions include consistent participation through attendance or regular contributions, ballot submission, and having a significant impact on a document or project. Corporate and Individual Awards IPC has also created several special awards over the years. These awards are presented for extraordinary efforts and long-time com- mitments to both IPC and the electronics in- dustry. There are six of these award catego- ries: four go to outstanding individuals, and two recognize companies whose IPC involve- ment has been extensive. As described by IPC, the awards are [1] : • The IPC Raymond E. Pritchard Hall of Fame Award is given to individuals in recognition of extraor- dinary contributions and distinguished service to IPC and in the advancement of the indus- try, including the creation of a spirit of mutual esteem, respect, and recognition among mem- bers consistent with the goals and mission of IPC. This is the highest level of recognition and achievement that IPC can give to an individu- al, and it is based on exceptional merit over a long-term basis—the operative imperative be- ing "long-term." • The Dieter Bergman IPC Fellowship Award is giv- en to individuals who have fostered a collab- orative spirit, made significant contributions to standards development, and have consis- tently demonstrated a commitment to global standardization efforts and the electronics in- dustry. Each recipient will be eligible to be- stow the Dieter Bergman Memorial Scholar- ship upon the university or college of their choice.
