|IAMCP Prometheus Awards 2016|
Each year the IAMCP provides an opportunity for Partners to recognize the Microsoft staff that work with them through this awards programme. Partners have an opportunity to vote for their preferred member of staff. The awards are made because the recipients have provided an outstanding level of service to the Partner and will have shown exceptional commitment in supporting the Partners that they work with.
Because of their dedication and service to Microsoft Partners, the IAMCP believes that they are deserving of an Award; this is an important way to recognize the people that make a real impact on Partner businesses. As part of our annual Awards efforts both at WPC and locally in Partner Summits, we work to recognize those who go the extra mile at every interaction with Partners.
IAMCP have created a process that establishes specific rules for nomination, voting and execution of the IAMCP Prometheus Awards. These awards will be granted by the IAMCP (International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners) to Microsoft employees worthy of such merit. The awards will be allocated by sub regions as detailed below.
The Prometheus Awards are presented annually to provide high-profile recognition of the top 4 representative regions and two emerging regions. One award will be given in each of these 6 geographical areas.
Prometheus Award winners may be recognized in 2 locations:
1) At the Worldwide Partner Conference
2) Locally at the Microsoft Partner Summit events
Participating Regions 2016:
3. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
The Prometheus Awards 2016 are now closed for nominations.
Each of the 4 regions will be responsible for nominating candidates for the International Committee's review. The nominations process has the following stages:
Candidate Nominations by IAMCP Chapters: According to the opinion of the partners (taken on the basis of the voting), candidates will have achieved some excellent standards of work with their Partners, having obtained satisfaction and fulfillment of objectives.
Any IAMCP member may nominate a Microsoft employee for a Prometheus award.
Chapter Presidents are responsible for notifying chapter members that the nominations period is open.
The President of each chapter will have to inform all the members of the IAMCP of this process of nomination. Any member of the IAMCP can propose candidates for the awards. In order to be able to propose candidates, they will need to observe the following rules:
