|AEG Advocacy Award: Nominations deadline extended to April 22
First Advocacy Award was Made at 2018 Annual Meeting
The AEG Advocacy Committee hosted the first AEG Advocacy Award at the 2018 Annual Meeting in San Francisco. This annual award is to recognize and showcase the accomplishments of one or more effective advocates for geological practice. In 2018, the AEG Advocacy Award was presented to Jennifer Bauer.
The deadline for nominations for the 2019 AEG Advocacy Award has been extended to Monday, April 22. All nominations should be sent via email to Eldon Gath. They will be reviewed and evaluated by the members of the AEG Advocacy Committee. The decision of the AEG Advocacy Committee is final.
The bulk of the advocacy and outreach work achieved within each nomination should have been completed within the past three years. Nominations that have been previously submitted are welcome to submit in future years.
Self-nominations are encouraged. Each nomination should include the name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and affiliation for the nominee. There is no specific form needed. In the case of a group nomination, the main point-of-contact will be shown with full information listed above, as well as the name, affiliation, and email address for each individual in the group.
The nomination will also include a short essay or listing of the nominee's efforts and their outcomes. The essay or listing will not exceed 300 words. Up to three photographs are welcome, but not required. Photo captions will be limited to 20 words each, and do not count toward the 300-word limit.
