Committee on Prizes & Awards

The membership of the Committee on Prizes and Awards consists of six (6) Councilors, selected by the Committee on Committees and appointed by the President-Elect to staggered three-year terms, which may include one year of service beyond their term as Councilor. The President-Elect appoints the Chair from among these six members. The Committee reviews all proposals for new prizes and awards and makes recommendations to the Council. It reviews all existing Society prizes and awards at least once every five years to insure they are properly funded and that the subject area of each prize and award remains relevant. The Committee also ensures that prize and award selection committee members represent the broadest possible context of the prize or award subject area and considers any other administrative issues related to prizes and awards.
