ICMG established the Award in 2001, naming it in honor of its first recipient, Don Kampe, who left behind a legacy of leadership and dedication to ICMG. The ICMG leadership endeavors to present this award each year to a deserving candidate. ICMG accepts nominations starting mid-October of each year. Any member of ICMG in good standing is eligible either to nominate a candidate or be nominated.


  • The deadline to submit a nomination is December 15.
  • The candidate should be a member of ICMG and should agree to be present at the upcoming Annual Conference to receive the award.
  • Eligible candidates must have made significant contributions to the growth and development of ICMG over a long period of time. Examples include but are not limited to volunteer service, growth of membership, improving member benefits, strategic development, and so forth.
  • Extensive past and/or current involvement in furthering strategic alliances in the industry is a plus in consideration for the reward, but is not a requirement. 
  • The award presentation traditionally takes place prior to the Attendee Introductions in the Opening General Session of the Annual Conference.
  • The traditional presenter is usually the previous year’s recipient. Depending on circumstances, the committee may select a different presenter. 
  • The Kampe Award Committee consists of the ICMG Board of Directors Vice President (Chair), President, Immediate Past President, and all past recipients. The committee convenes to select a recipient by early January.
  • Award notification is shared in advance with the winning candidate so he or she may make the necessary preparations to attend the Annual Conference and receive the Award.
