I think this is one of the best awards that AALL presents to an outstanding member. Actually, it just makes me think back to when I was within my first 10 years of the profession (really, not that long ago) and how eager I was to get into the association, be involved, and make a difference. Looking at the past list of winners, you can see how much of an impact they have had on the association already.
If you know of anyone you would like to nominate (or if you want to nominate yourself… which is completely fine), the deadline is February 1st, so you need to get moving!!
Here’s the instructions:
Nominations should include evidence of the nominee’s contributions to AALL and/or the profession and may include up to 3 supporting letters. (Petitions and letter writing campaigns, beyond those letters included with the application, are discouraged and will not be considered in the evaluation process — nor will they influence the Committee.)
Self-nomination is acceptable.
