Starts: 01 May, 2019
Ends: 15 Oct, 2019
Location: Online Opportunity


The ISACA Global Achievement Awards are ISACA’s highest honors presented to individuals who have proven sustained contributions to ISACA knowledge and leadership. Volunteer reviewers will evaluate the nominations and recommend a recipient for each award. The reviewer groups’ recommendations for recipients will be submitted to the ISACA Awards Working Group for final approval.

Two groups of reviewers will be formed to share the responsibility of nomination review:

  • Knowledge: Global Achievement Award reviewers will review nominations for the Michael Cangemi Best Book/Article Award, John Kuyers Best Speaker Award and John W. Lainhart IV Common Body of Knowledge Award
  • Leadership: Global Achievement Award reviewers will review nominations for the Eugene M. Frank Award for Meritorious Performance, Harold Weiss Award for Outstanding Achievement, and Paul Williams Award for Inspirational Leadership.

Anticipated outcomes:

May 2019 – August 15, 2019

  • Help promote the nomination process for all ISACA Awards to their chapters and other ISACA members.

September 1-30, 2019

  • Review and evaluate the nominations online per the award reviewer guidelines (to be provided with the nomination packages.) All assigned nominations must be judged by the 30 September deadline.
  • Maintain confidentiality of all nomination content including candidates who have been nominated.
  • Recommend opportunities to ISACA staff to enhance the nomination and evaluation processes.

After 30 September, all scores will be compiled by ISACA staff and submitted to the ISACA Awards Working Group who will have final selection of all 2020 ISACA Award recipients in October. The recipients will be announced at the end of 2019 for the presentations in 2020.

To avoid any conflicts of interest, volunteers selected as Global Achievement Award judges may NOT submit nominations, endorsement letters or be nominated for any 2020 Global Achievement Awards. They may, however, participate in the chapter awards nomination process, which is separate from the Global Achievement Awards.

Volunteer Criteria:

  • ISACA Membership required.
  • Knowledge of ISACA frameworks, products, certifications and services.
  • Geographic area representation considered.
  • Ability to maintain confidentiality of all nomination data and communication related to the candidates and recipients.
  • Fair minded and unbiased approach to evaluating the nominations and selecting recipients.
  • Availability to review nominations electronically and evaluate candidates in September. The total number of candidates for review will be unknown until judging opens, but volunteers should expect to spend a significant portion of time throughout September reading and scoring nominations.

Volunteer benefits:

  • Up to 15 CPE credits (max. 20 annually) in the area of Working on ISACA Boards/Committees/Working Groups to be posted to the volunteer’s ISACA account upon successfully reviewing all assigned nominations by the deadline. Failure to review all nominations will result in 0 CPE credits.
  • Help recognize outstanding achievements of colleagues and other chapters.
