2019 Technicians of the Year Award

The inaugural AED Foundation Technicians of the Year Award will be presented at the Foundation’s Gala on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 during AED’s Summit in Chicago. The goal of this award is to recognize the hard-working technicians who are critical to the success of AED distributor members and the industry as a whole.

The focus of this award is to highlight the importance of the technician career, to build additional awareness about the technician shortage that is impacting the industry, and to promote the career to students, parents, educators, and other stakeholders.

The nomination process begins with an online nomination form to be filled out by the employer. Nominations are open to all technicians with at least 5 years of experience who work for an AED member company. One winning technician will be recognized from each of AED’s regions: Canada, Great Lakes, Midwest, Northeast, Rocky Mountain, South Central, Southeast, and West. The location of a company’s headquarters determines their AED region.

A company may nominate a maximum of three technicians for the Technicians of the Year Award. All entered nominees will be up for consideration for the award during the current year, in addition to the two years following their submission.
