Nominations Sought for Distinguished Achievement Award
Nominations are needed for the Distinguished Achievement Award, presented to a member of the statistics community by the Section on Statistics in Defense and National Security. The purpose of the award is to recognize an outstanding accomplishment or a record of sustained contributions at the intersection of the statistics profession and national defense or security. Any member of the section is allowed to nominate.
A nomination should include a short description of the basis for the award, contact information for both the nominator and nominee, and suggested text for the certificate. A maximum of five seconding letters submitted in PDF format are welcome.
The deadline for nominations is March 15. The award will be presented during the 2010 Joint Statistical Meetings in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
This recognition does not include a financial award. Unsuccessful nominations from previous years are not, and will not be, carried forward, so new nomination packages should be prepared. Electronic nominations are preferred. Email nominations along with any questions to Myron Katzoff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
