Awards Committee

The Awards Committee’s charge is to showcase and promote scientific excellence by recommending the recipients of the Society’s awards to the Board of Directors for approval. It will consider scientific excellence, professional citizenship and stewardship, and diversity as factors in its recommendations.

Committee meets by telephone in June to review and make recommendations for the Society award recipients; in August by telephone to select the Epstein Award semi-finalists and finalists; and in October at the Annual Meeting to select the Epstein Award winners.
