At least two of the letters must come from active members (participating members in attendance at the DTM annual meeting at least once within the past three years). Nominations are evaluated by the Design Theory and Methodology Award Selection Committee consisting of the DTMTC Chair, the immediate past DTMTC Chair, the DTM Conference Chair, and two past winners of Design Theory and Methodology Award selected by the DTMTC Chair, the immediate past DTMTC Chair, and the DTM Conference Chair. In the event that past winners of the award are not available, the DTMTC chair will select committee members from those who have previously served in positions of Technical Committee or Conference leadership.
