ITEA LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
The Lifetime Achievement Awards were established by the Executive Committee of the Tubists Universal Brotherhood Association (now the International Tuba/Euphonium Association) in 1991 as a way to honor those individuals who have made exceptional achievements in and/or service to the euphonium and tuba profession and the advancement of our instruments in the music world. Every two years, the Executive Committee and Board of Directors select awardees from among five categories: performance, pedagogy, scholarship, industry, and composition. Deserving individuals who do not fit into one of these categories may be considered from time to time upon written request by any member of ITEA with accompanying documentation as outlined below. Posthumous awards may be made as deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors and without the normal nomination process.

The Herbert Wekselblatt Amendment
In circumstances wherein a duly qualified individual (as described previously in these guidelines and so recognized by the Board) is in an end-of-life situation, whether due to advanced age or terminal illness, the Board of Directors may direct the Executive Committee to designate that individual as a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Under this circumstance, when said person has been approved to receive the Award, it may be presented immediately (irrespective of the Awards Cycle) to the Awardee, and the Awardee will subsequently be recognized at the next ITEC Awards Banquet.
Amendment to Guidelines
These guidelines will be reviewed by the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of ITEA every award cycle with possibility of amendment/alteration to be effective during the succeeding award cycle.
