This new one-day workshop is divided into two key blocks. The morning segment is targeted to potential applicants as well as assessors and potential assessors. It will cover the award criteria and the overall application process and annual timeline, including review of key documents applicants must provide. The afternoon segment is primarily focused on the activities of Award Assessors, although potential applicants can also benefit from gaining an understanding of how assessors are expected to approach the various applicant review activities.
Participants will gain valuable information about how to effectively build a strong achievement report, the key document that applicant companies submit to summarize why they should be considered for the award. They will also come away with a clear picture of the process and timeline that the AME Excellence Award Committee uses to review, score and provide feedback to applicant companies. Participants will examine the role of the assessor and, through hands-on team practice using a mock achievement report, they will be challenged to identify the differences between a great vs. an average Achievement Report.
*Attendance at this workshop does not ensure participants will become an award assessor. The AME Excellence Award committee reserves the right to evaluate the background and capabilities of all potential assessors before making a decision to add them to the assessor pool.
