Noia is pleased to inform its members, the oil & gas industry, and the public that nominations are now being accepted for the 2019 Industry Achievement Awards. Nominations will remain open until 5:00 p.m. Friday, November 16, 2018 for both the Outstanding Contribution Award and the Rising Star Award.
The Outstanding Contribution Award recognizes exemplary contribution of an individual who, through the course of their work and personal life, has influenced the development of the offshore oil & gas industry. Individuals may be nominated by other industry members or individuals from the community at large. Criteria for nomination includes over 10 years industry experience, demonstrated leadership skills, advocacy on behalf of the industry, and giving back to the community. In honour of Noia’s 25th anniversary, the Outstanding Contribution Award was first presented in 2002 when 12 industry influencers were the inaugural recipients.
The Rising Star Award recognizes outstanding achievement by an oil & gas industry member who has demonstrated significant achievement and is 40 years of age or younger as of December 31, 2019. The individual must have a minimum of two years industry experience and demonstrate personal and professional achievement, as well as being an advocate for the industry.
“The Industry Achievement Awards are a tremendous way to recognize achievement and to say thank you to an individual who has given so much of their professional and personal life to our oil and gas industry. I encourage everyone to consider those they work with every day in the industry for one of these prestigious awards. While our industry leaders do not expect recognition for their efforts, their dedication to the offshore industry and the objectives of Noia deserve to be honoured.” — Liam O’Shea, Chair of the Noia Board of Directors
