The nominations can be submitted here until the 10th of May 2018 and the Nominations Review Board will be comprised of members of the EBAA Safety Committee. Please be advised that we also accept self-nominations and the winners of the award will be notified via email. Furthermore, the awards ceremony will take place at EBACE, in Geneva, on the 31st of May, between 09:00 and 10:00.
