Leadership Circle Awards

Beginning in the fall of 2002, ECS began recognizing long-term supporters of the Society with the Leadership Circle Awards. This award is a way of recognizing and thanking our partners in electrochemistry and solid state science. This award is granted in the anniversary year an institutional member reaches a milestone level.

Recipient qualifications

Recipients will be institutional members in good standing.

Award

The award consists of a commemorative plaque. The award will be presented by the ECS President or appointed ECS representative to a distinguished institutional representative corporation at an ECS biannual meeting or a mutually acceptable facility of the recipient’s choosing. Institutions celebrating milestones will be recognized on the ECS website and in Interface magazine. Photos will be provided to the corporation for their publicity purposes.
