Honors / Awards
Since its organization in 1943, SEM has relied heavily upon volunteer leadership and the professional expertise of its members. In the early 1950s the Executive Board began to explore means to formally recognize worthy individual contributions to the Society. Over the years several awards were established. Prior to 1967 the selection of award recipients was the sole responsibility of the Executive Board. In 1967 an Honors Committee was established to oversee the selection of individuals to receive these honors.
|Please note that the Honors Committee meets each year at the SEM Annual Conference (generally held the first week in June) to determine award recipients for the following year. The committee will consider all Nominations received by April 15 of that year. A nomination received is kept for active consideration for three years.|
