It is time to begin the selection process for AAPG’s Honors and Awards to be presented at the annual meeting in Houston, Texas, April 6-9, 2014. The AAPG Honors and Awards Committee, a committee within the Advisory Council, is responsible for recommending individuals for awards for consideration of the Advisory Council for forwarding to the Executive Committee for their consideration and approval.
During the past few years we have endeavored to improve representation within our diverse Association by expanding the list of persons encouraged to submit nominations. Nominations can be tendered by any member of the Association.
The selection of awardees is an extremely significant aspect of AAPG activities because it allows the Association to express its gratitude to its members and recognize the values and standards that should be encouraged in our membership.
Download the Honors and Awards Booklet (PDF) and utilize the Nomination Forms from the left navigation bar which have been prepared to assist you in submitting recommendations. I encourage you to make a concerted effort to address the information requested on the nomination forms including the nominees’ merits. To submit nominations, please forward to AAPG, c/o Linda Burris, P.O. Box 979, Tulsa, OK 74101-0979 or electronically to Linda Burris. in the recommended format by June 7, 2013.
Proper documentation must be provided in order for the Advisory Council to consider your recommendations. Nominations received without sufficient documentation simply are not as persuasive as those that are well prepared and documented. The nominees that you feel deserve consideration for the award certainly deserve your best efforts to illustrate why they should be considered for the award. Nominations received after June 7 will be considered the following year. The Awards Committee considers nominees for three years after the initial submission.
The Honors and Awards Committee seeks nominations for the following awards:
A copy of the nominee’s activity sheet is available upon request from Linda Burris, firstname.lastname@example.org, (918) 560-2608 or by fax (918) 560-2626.
The Executive Committee, acting on a recommendation from the Advisory Council, requests that nominees not be notified and that this information be kept confidential until all selections have been made and approved by the Executive Committee.
