BICSI has a new award for its upcoming Winter Conference Awards Banquet: the Emerging ICT Professionals Award, targeting individuals ages 35 and under who have shown a “strong interest in the ICT industry by advancing their education and gaining knowledge through work experience”.
Award candidates have begun their career in the ICT industry and are taking the initiative by participating in BICSI and acting as leaders and mentors toward other emerging professionals wanting to do the same, the organization says.
“It is incredibly important that we acknowledge and celebrate the impact that young and emerging professionals are making within BICSI and the industry as a whole,” said BICSI president Brian Ensign. “They are spearheading new developments in ICT every day and are, quite literally, shaping our future. That certainly deserves recognition, and we are thrilled to begin presenting this new award in 2017.”
This award makes its debut on Jan. 25, 2017 at the Tampa Convention Centre, where the conference is taking place.
