The Awards Committee shall be charged with the responsibility of seeking nominations for the awards presented by the Society and by majority vote, determining the winner of these awards. The President shall appoint a member of the Society to serve as Chair for the Awards Committee on an annual basis. The Chair of the Awards Committee will convene a committee of not less than seven additional members. The Society shall strive to have an Awards Committee (including Chair) comprised entirely of former winners of the Reilley award. The Chair of the committee is charged with oversight and reporting results and is a non-voting position. Any member of the Awards Committee must recuse themselves from voting for a nominee for which they serve as a primary nominator. Committee members who write seconding letters in support of a nominee are still eligible to vote for that nominee. In the charge to the Committee, the Chair shall encourage best practice for fair consideration of all nominees, including review of implicit and unintentional bias as described on the Society website.
