Fellows Award Nominations are open through March 22nd!

The honor of Fellow is conferred upon members in recognition of remarkable service to the Society in advancing our mission. This high honor is granted in belief that special recognition should be given for exceptional and dedicated service at the state or chapter level. This honor recognizes this service and embodies “grass roots” recognition by members.

The selection criteria and eligibility and the process for selection for these awards have been revised for 2024.

  1. The primary criterion for selection of a recipient for this award is tangible evidence that the exceptional service performed by the nominee is widely effective and generally recognized at the state or chapter level. Sufficient evidence must support the nomination to present a strong case history of continuous contribution and service.
  2. A candidate must have maintained membership for ten years as of December 31 of the preceding year. 
  3. No more than one candidate per two thousand members (or parts of two thousand) may receive the Fellow honor in any year. No one may receive more than one Fellow honor in their lifetime (view previous award winners here).

As a member of the Society you may nominate eligible members.

The Awards Committee will review all nominations. Only those with sufficient evidence of service will be sent to the membership for election (view the revised process).
