The purpose of the Jerome F. Lederer Award is to recognize outstanding contributions to technical
excellence in accident investigation. The Award is presented each year during the annual seminar to
a recipient who is recognized for positive advancements in the art and science of air safety investigation.
The nomination process permits any member of ISASI to submit a nomination.
The nominee may be an individual, a group of individuals, or an organization.
The nominee is not required to be an ISASI member.
The nomination may be for a single event, a series of events, or a lifetime of achievement.
The ISASI Awards Committee considers such traits as duration and persistence, standing among peers, manner
and techniques of operating, and of course, achievements.
Once nominated, a nominee is considered for the next 3 years and then dropped. After an intervening year,
the candidate may be nominated for another 3 years.
The nomination letter for the Lederer Award should be limited to a single page.
This Award is one of the most significant honors an accident investigator can receive; therefore,
considerable care is given in determining the recipient. ISASI members should thoughtfully review their
Association with professional investigators, and submit a nomination when they identify someone who has
been outstanding in increasing the technical quality of accident investigation.
Nominations should be mailed, or e-mailed to the ISASI office or directly to the Awards Committee chair,
Gale Braden, 13805 Edmond Gardens Drive, Edmond, OK 73013-7064,
E-mail; email@example.com. Nominations must be received by May 30th
