Distinguished Service Award

Since 2003 the SCMS Service Award has honored individuals who have demonstrated sustained commitment to the Society.  The Board of Directors nominates and selects the winner.  The Board is not required to select a winner every year, but only when a worthy candidate emerges. Board nominations are made prior to the Fall Board of Directors’ meeting to allow Board members time to consider the nominees carefully.  The nominee should not be a current member of the Board.  Board members must prepare a nomination statement describing the nominee’s service to SCMS (not scholarly achievements) and why s/he deserves the award.
