Nominate a colleague for the McGinnis Award
The IEEE AUTOTESTCON Frank McGinnis Professional Achievement Award recognizes outstanding leadership, individual initiative and technical contributions in the field of automatic test engineering, either for a specific accomplishment or for a body of activities during a career. The award honors the memory of Frank McGinnis who headed an Industry/Joint Services Automatic Test Task Force instrumental in initiating new thrusts in military R&D in ATE. The Task Force evolved into the National Security Industrial Association (NSIA) Automatic Test Committee. NSIA later merged with the American Defense Preparedness Association (ADPA), to become the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) where the Automatic Test Committee is still active under the NDIA Systems Engineering Division. The award includes a "keeper" trophy, a brass plate addition to the permanent plaque on display at the National Electronics Museum in Baltimore, Maryland, and a cash prize of $2,000.
