AFFIRM Award History
AFFIRM was one of the first associations to recognize outstanding individuals in our government with an awards program. Starting in its first year, 1979, AFFIRM focused its recognition on one government executive with its Executive Leadership Award in Information Resources Management. In the early part of the 2000s, AFFIRM expanded its Leadership Awards to recognize additional outstanding individuals in various award categories. The award categories were based upon the major administration or other government-wide initiatives. We also added an award to recognize an outstanding industry leader. While there are several categories of awards, AFFIRM does not make awards in all categories each year. AFFIRM only makes awards in a category when there are candidates who have exemplified outstanding leadership in that particular area.
Recipients of our highest award, the Executive Leadership Award for Information Resources Management, include members of the House of Representatives, Senate, Office of Management and Budget, Departments and Administrations – Elected Officials, Appointees and Career Civil Servants. The key criteria is that of “Outstanding Executive Leadership”: leadership beyond their specific organization; leadership that has been exemplified by outstanding results and actions that have improved the management of Information Technology for our wonderful country.
