10 © 2015 SMPTE® Section funds are recognized as being assets of the Society, just as Home Office funds are. This means that, like Home Office accounts, your Section accounts are audited annually as part of our reporting to the US Internal Revenue Service. The reporting is required in order for us to retain our classification under Section 501 c 3 of the Internal Revenue Code. For those of you not familiar with the US tax code, this equivalent to registered charity status.

11 Section Finance Overview © 2015 SMPTE® Your budgets are due in September, your fourth-quarter and full-year financials in January. If you miss those dates, Sally has to chase you, as she has to present your budgets to Paul and me for approval in early October and your financials to the auditors at the end of January. If you have any problems or questions about the budgets or the financials, please contact me, Paul or Sally.

20 © 2013 SMPTE Fellow Nominations and Citation for Outstanding Service

21 Confidentiality © 2015 SMPTE® The entire awards process depends on nominees not being aware that they are being considered for an award. The entire process has to be conducted in confidence. You cannot ask the potential nominee for biographical information. Do the best you can. Award winners will be offered the opportunity to update or correct their biographical information before the awards are announced to the public.

22 Fellow Nominations © 2015 SMPTE® According to the Governance Operations Manual (found online here:, Section Chairs are all members of the Fellow Membership Nominations Committee. The purpose of this committee is to recommend candidates for election to the Fellow grade of membership. The Fellow Membership Nominations Committee shall consist of all members of the Board of Governors, appointed Directors, the Chairs of Standards Technology Committees and the Chairs of Sections of the Society.

23 Fellow Nominations © 2015 SMPTE® The procedures for nomination are outlined on the SMPTE website here: You can also download a nomination form and view the submission guidelines from the above site. All nominations must be returned to Sally-Ann at Headquarters no later than April 27, 2015. These forms can be sent via email or fax. Each nomination must be signed by two current Fellows. If you are a Fellow, you only need one other Fellow to support the nomination. However, if you are not currently a Fellow, you will need two Fellows (or Life Fellows) to sign in support of the nomination.

This Citation is intended to recognize individuals for dedicated service for the betterment of the Society over a sustained period of time. Consideration will be given for service at the Society-wide, Regional, and Section levels. This Citation is not intended to recognize technological achievement, service in Society Offices, or services that may be more appropriately recognized by other medals or awards.
