The objective of this manual is to describe the process to be followed in organizing the “Young IT Professional (YITP) Awards”, which can be a reference guide for all the Regional Vice Presidents, EXECOM Members, Awards Committee and Sponsors. This will also be guiding tool for all the Regional and National rounds. It provides an overview of all the awards that are instituted or given by the CSI to acknowledge and motivate individuals and organizations working in the field of IT. The content of this document will be updated for continuous improvement as when the need arises.
Participants can be from the Institutes, Business organizations, Research Institutes and Interns from incubation centers of universities/recognized institutes.
The YITP award is instituted both at National as well as Regional level. To make this award popular and to get maximum entries for participation at each region, promotion by way of advertising and branding will be done by CSI HQ by having a brochure, announcement in CSI communication and on CSI website, mailing to leading IT companies, service industry, academic institutes and members. The event can also reach the mass through social networking sites.
CSI HQ will provide the 100 printed broucher to each region for marketing purpose. To maintain the consistency in the event, seven common banners and certificates will be designed at HQ with respective host chapter, venue and event date details as given by all the host chapter. Each host chapter will receive the soft copy from HQ and they can print it at their end.
The data and information provided in the nomination by the individuals/organizations will be treated with absolute confidentiality. CSI reserves the right to publish any of the data and information submitted by the individuals/organizations, without attribution.
To make the YITP award a success YITP committees at National and Regional level will jointly put effort.
Regional YITP Committee: Each region will have regional YITP committee. The RVP of region will be the YITP Coordinator for that region. He will nominate the Regional Convener preferably from the host chapter. Regional Coordinator and Regional Convener will invite senior members of the host chapter, leading IT professional and academicians in the Regional Committee.
National YITP Committee: The National YITP Convener will have all Regional YITP Coordinators in National YITP Committee. The president can nominate ExeCom members, leading IT professionals and Academicians in this committee.
This reference manual will give a perspective of YITP Awards to all the stakeholders to make this event a success and create a brand of its own. Preparing this manual is first of its kind and will be enhance every year. We request all the RVPs and YITP Conveners to prepare and share a report (with lesson learnt) of the YITP Awards conducted at their respective region. This will help to improvise the event and smooth functioning for the future event.
