They say it takes several years for an awards program to really get off the ground and start amassing a history, establishing a place for itself in the industry. If this is true, then I believe we can safely say that this year, the LCGC Pittcon Awards have officially arrived.

They say it takes several years for an awards program to really get off the ground and start amassing a history, establishing a place for itself in the industry. If this is true, then I believe we can safely say that this year, the LCGC Pittcon Awards have officially arrived. With past Lifetime Achievement Award winners such as Walt Jennings and Harold McNair, and bright young stars such as Gert Desmet and Kevin Schug claiming Emerging Leader honors over the past couple of years, there is a great deal of suspense building over who will win the 2010 awards, set to be presented at Pittcon 2010 in Orlando, Florida.

Past winners have gone on to make great contributions to LCGC, writing installments of our well-known “History of Chromatography” column, guest authoring installments of “Column Watch,” and even acting as scientific advisor for the many online projects that are currently in development. In short, this year’s panel of industry experts will have their hands fullmaintaining the tradition of the LCGC Awards, and we have every confidence they will.

The nomination process for the Emerging Leader Award is now open, and in the coming months, the greatly anticipated online reader vote for Lifetime Achievement Award winner will take place, in which the readers of LCGC have a direct say in who this year’s winner will be. To nominate the candidate of your choice, please visit: www.chromatographyonline.com/nominate for the full nomination guidelines. We hope all of our readers will participate in these awards, whether through nominations or by casting a vote.

We look forward to a successful 2010 LCGC Awards program, and we thank you as always for your continued support.
