The Distinguished Achievement Award is available for presentation annually, beginning in 2021. This award recognizes a Section member who has provided outstanding long-term service to the Section and the ASA.
Consideration for this award requires a formal nomination by a Section member other than the nominee -- self-nominations are not allowed. A nominee must be a member of the ASA, and preferably of the Section, at the time of nomination. Prior recipients are ineligible.
The nomination letter should summarize the nominee’s contributions to the Section and the ASA in general, including officer positions, committee membership, development and promotion of initiatives, organization of events at JSM, and other related activities. In the review of applications, activities directly related to the TSHS mission are given more weight than activities related to the ASA at large.
The recipient receives a certificate and a $250 cash award, and is recognized at the Section's annual Business Meeting and Mixer (typically held at JSM). Deadline for nominations is May 1 of the award year.
