Past Award of Merit Recipients
At its Annual General Meeting in 2007 the Association established an Award of Merit which recognizes and celebrates members’ outstanding services to the discipline. The new bylaw is reproduced below. The deadline for nominations in each year is December 15th. Enquiries and nominations should be addressed to the Past President, who chairs the selection committee.
- The Association shall administer an Award of Merit in order to recognize a member’s longstanding and meritorious efforts in fulfilling the goals of the Association (as defined in Article 2 of the Constitution). The Award shall consist of a citation and certificate presented at the Annual General Meeting. The Award is an opportunity for the Association to acknowledge outstanding service to the discipline, such as, but not limited to, excellent or innovative teaching, mentoring of students and faculty colleagues, promoting knowledge of the ancient Greek and Roman world among the general public, and service to the Association.
- The Award of Merit shall be made according to the following procedure. Each year before September 15th, the Association shall issue a call for nominations to all members, with a deadline for submissions of December 15th. Each nomination shall be signed by a nominator and a seconder, and shall include a statement of the specific reasons for the nomination. At or before its Fall meeting the Council shall strike a committee consisting of one ordinary Council member, two regular members of the Association, and the Past President as chair. This committee shall report its recommendation(s) to the Council at its spring meeting. One or more awards may be made in any year. The Committee shall compose citation(s) to be presented at the Annual General Meeting of the Association.
