Please send nominations for SLA New York Chapter Awards to Sheila Sterling, Chair SLA NY Awards Committee firstname.lastname@example.org
The New York Chapter of SLA now has 3 awards: The Distinguished Service Award, The Outstanding Achievement Award and the President's Award, please see descriptions of each below, to recognize members for special contributions to the Chapter in particular and/or the Association in general. These awards will be presented at the New York Chapter's Annual Meeting and Awards Presentation.
Please submit your nominations together with some explanatory information as to why you feel this person is deserving of this specific award by September 15, 2009. More than one nomination is welcome, so please nominate your colleagues or yourself!
- The Distinguished Service Award serves to recognize members of the New York Chapter who have a track record of long service to the Chapter in particular and perhaps also to the Association in general. The Distinguished Service Award can be given to more than one individual in the same year. An individual can receive the Distinguished Service Award only one time over the course of a career.
- The Outstanding Achievement Award is presented to members of the New York Chapter to recognize recent outstanding work on specific projects and activities (within approximately the last two years). The Outstanding Achievement Award can be given to one person or to a group of people who worked together on a project. An individual can receive The Outstanding Achievement Award more than once over the course of a career.
- The President's Award provides an opportunity to recognize members of the New York Chapter for outstanding contributions to SLA and/or for professional excellence. The President's Award is intentionally somewhat less well-defined than the other two in order to give the Board more flexibility in selecting individuals to receive it. The President's Award can be given to more than one individual in the same year.
