                                             Awards & Honors Committee Interim Report
Memo to:       Board of Directors

From:          Chairman, Awards & Honors Committee

Date:          April 6, 2007

Subject:       Interim Report

Executive Summary

This is an interim report prepared to inform the Board of Directors about activities of the subject
committee between the period of December 2006 and April 2007.

Current Activities

Professional Awards. The Committee has developed its first professional award, The NCMA
Excellence in Contracts Professionalism Award. The Award has been posted on the Discussion
web site for several months and no comments have been received. A discussion regarding the
appropriate size of the cash prize is on the agenda today.

Simplification and Exploitation of Current Awards Process. The Dana and Keen awards
have been rewritten to implement the use of a nominations committee to identify a slate of at
least 2 but not more than 3 candidates for each of the two awards. The new process was partially
employed this year to round out the slate of candidates for the Keen Award. Past President
Woodside chaired a committee, which identified a third candidate for Keen. In accordance with
the process, the A&H committee then voted on the slate, selecting a single winner for the Keen.
The revised nominations procedures are included at Attachments 1 and 2.

Mr. Woodside and his committee have provided lessons learned. Two of the most noteworthy,
which must be addressed, are the backlash which may occur with non-selected nominees and the
lack of any real discriminator between the Dana and the Keen. This feedback will be considered
by the A&H Committee and further refinement of these awards may be enacted prior to the end
of PY06-07. Mr. Woodside and the Board of Advisor members that served on the 07 Keen
nomination committee may be willing to serve in the same capacity for PY07-08.

NCMA Fellows Criteria. The Committee made a slight adjustment to the Fellows Criteria to
allow substitute activities for future candidates. This change was driven by recent Governance
changes. The Committee suggests that further slight adjustments should be thoughtfully
considered to align with the Association’s strategic initiatives and current Governance structure.

Award Publicity as a Means of Branding/Advocacy. Joan Wysoske has spearheaded an
effort to utilize the issuance of awards as a means of promoting the NCMA brand.
The National Office Staff will make it part of their internal process to include the following in
the package or notification letter for all awardees, as they currently do for CPCM, CFFM, etc.
This would include Fellow and any other awards made.
