On December 13th, 2018 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., the Senior Executives Association (SEA) will host the Presidential Rank Awards Leadership Summit to provide exceptional educational, mentoring, and networking opportunities for current and aspiring SES members and senior leaders.

Summit participants will have unparalleled access to private and public sector thought leaders and the opportunity to exchange ideas for advancing public service excellence.

The conference will also recognize the extraordinary public service of senior career professionals by honoring the 2018 awardees with the nation’s highest civilian career leadership awards:  

Distinguished Rank Recipients: Given to only one percent of career Senior Executive Service (SES) members or SES equivalents. Distinguished Rank recipients are recognized for sustained extraordinary accomplishments.

Meritorious Rank Recipients: Awarded to 5 percent of career SES or SES equivalents, Meritorious Rank recipients are recognized for outstanding achievement to enhance the mission of their agency.

 

Awardees' Impact By the Numbers

The Presidential Rank Awards represent the top award a civilian federal employee can receive. The awards are given by the President of the United States to exemplary federal leaders who have overseen successful federal initiatives with a sweeping impact.
