2. There will be one or two nominees from each agency recognized by the L.C.A.E in accordance with the membership guidelines, i.e. larger institutions may nominate two candidates.
3. Each nominee must agree to the nomination and be willing to participate in any resulting publicity.
4. The nominee must demonstrate how the education/training process relates to his/her experiences as a lifelong learner.
