We want to recognize outstanding ARM Institute Members with our new ARM Champion Award!
The ARM Champion Award Program is an effort to recognize our Members who go above and beyond to enable the ARM Institute’s work. We launched this Program at the 2021 Annual ARM Member Meeting where we named Juan Aparicio (previously of READY Robotics) and Debbie Franklin (Wichita State University) as our first two ARM Champions. Since then, we also named Matt Robinson (Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and ROS-Industrial) and Brian Wilson (Duro UAS) our second set of ARM Champions. All ARM Champions will be recognized at our Annual Member Meeting taking place November 15-17, 2022.
Previously the ARM Institute leadership team selected Members for recognition. Now, we are opening nominations to the full membership, in addition to the ARM staff nominating Members! Members can nominate themselves and others for the ARM Champion Award. The ARM Institute will open nominations on a semi-quarterly basis.
The deadline for nominations for this round of Champion Award is July 29, 2022. We plan to select two Champions from the submitted nominations.
