2005 IAPP Seeks Nominations of Privacy Pro Stand-outs for Annual Vanguard Award

Nomination Deadline is Sept. 30 for Privacy Professional of the Year Award

YORK, Maine — September 8, 2005 -- A privacy professional will be singled out for distinction next month when the world's largest association of professionals in the privacy field recognizes one of its own members for the IAPP Vanguard Award.

Given to the outstanding privacy professional of the year, the IAPP Privacy Vanguard Award will be presented during the IAPP's Privacy Academy October 26-28 in Las Vegas.

"We are proud to honor a privacy professional who has demonstrated outstanding leadership, creativity and innovation in the privacy profession during the past year or through enduring career efforts," said IAPP Executive Director Trevor Hughes. "The Vanguard Award is notable for its recognition of a single recipient who has contributed significantly to our privacy field. We look forward to receiving the nominations for this special award."

Any IAPP member may nominate a candidate and provide no more than two support letters from other individuals. A candidate also may self-nominate, as long as they are IAPP members and provide support letters from other privacy professionals. Candidates, or their nominators, must provide a one-page summary of accomplishments demonstrating outstanding leadership and innovation in the profession of privacy during the past year or cumulative career efforts.
The nomination deadline is September 30. All entries will be judged by the Executive Director and the Executive Committee of IAPP's Board of Directors.
