OUTSTANDING SERVICE AWARD
In late 2022, the SCAS leadership devised a plan to honour people who have made significant contributions or enabled the formation of the new Society of Canadian Aquatic Sciences. The idea was to simply recognize people with a lapel pin that would be presented at the annual business meeting. The recipients would be recognized on the SCAS website on a page recognizing those for exceptional service to SCAS (name and year of award would be listed).
Descision and Presentation
The current president, the vice president, and the chair of the Awards committee will review nominations and present a motion to the executive committee at the annual business meeting listing successful nominations and their contribution(s).
Pins will then be immediately presented to any successful nominations who are in attendence. The secretary will mail pins to any successful nominations not present at the meeting.
