Leadership Circle Awards

ECS began recognizing long-term supporters of the Society with the Leadership Circle Awards in the fall of 2002. The award honors and thanks our partners in electrochemistry and solid state science. It is granted in the anniversary year that an institutional member reaches a milestone level.

Recipient qualifications

Recipients are institutional members in good standing.

Award

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