Carry out all activities to select recipients of the Lifetime Service Award.

Select at most two recipients of the Lifetime Service Award which is presented at the AAA Annual Meeting. Specifically:

  • Review and evaluate nominations
  • Current Committee members who are nominated for the award will be asked to either recuse themselves from the Committee or remove their nomination from consideration.
  • All nominees nominated for a given year’s award – who are not selected for that year’s award – will be automatically considered for the award for the following two (2) years.  Nominees who were not selected for the 2018 AAA Lifetime Service Award will be considered during the selection process for the 2019 Award and, if not chosen for the 2019 Award, will also be considered for the 2020 Award.  At the end of the selection process for the 2020 Award, if a nominee has not been chosen as the award recipient or has not been re-nominated, he/she will no longer be considered for the award.
  • Select recipient(s) of the award based on the award criteria
  • Chair presents the Award(s) at the AAA Annual Meeting
  • If the Chair has any questions about the charge or responsibilities of this committee, s/he should contact the Executive Director, the President, or the Committee's Board of Directors Liaison.
