Resources for Official Members of the Awards Committee

Members of the Awards Committee, by invitation only of the Awards Committee Chair, should consult the following resource(s):

Members are reminded of the Awards Committee Voting procedure (adopted by the SEAC BOD in August, 2021):

  • Members of the awards committee will create a preliminary ranking of nominees in order of merit for the award, ranked from 1 to the number of nominations received, with 1 being the lowest-ranked (least meritorious) nomination.
  • The Chair of the Awards Committee will compile the preliminary ranking of nominees from all members of the committee to determine an initial ranking.
  • The preliminary vote will be used to identify the top two nominees (or more in the case of a tie), determined by compiling rankings from each member of the awards committee.
  • In the case of more than two nominees, a run-off between the two top nominees (identified above) will be held.  Each member of the committee will vote to indicate a preference between the two nominees.  The nominee with the most votes will be selected as the award winner.
  • Any member of the Awards Committee shall recuse themselves from voting on a nominee for which they serve as a primary nominator in the preliminary ranking.  This does not include seconding letters, only the nominator.  All voting members of the Awards Committee are allowed to vote in the run-off.
