Supporting letters from current SIR Fellows are very important components of the nomination package. As a general rule, more weight will be given to letters that provide substantial information as opposed to a brief or pro-forma letters. Sponsors should be encouraged to provide detail in their letters of your accomplishments. Although at least two letters are required, more are certainly allowed, particularly if they document significant or unusual experience, or service not specifically spelled out in this document, but felt by the nominee to be applicable.

Sponsors must provide a letter of recommendation by using SIR's online Letter of Recommendation form found here: http://www.tfaforms.com/283150

It is your responsibility to encourage the submission of your letters.
