Call for nominations: The ALISE/Norman Horrocks Leadership Award for 2011

This award recognizes a new ALISE member who has demonstrated
outstanding leadership qualities in professional ALISE activities. This
award addresses a number of concerns relevant to the Association,
including: the need to attract new members and retain their membership
as a lifelong commitment; the need to develop and recognize those new
members with outstanding leadership qualities as future leaders of ALISE
at the highest levels; and, the need to recognize newer members for
service to the organization rather than limiting recognition at this
stage to academic achievements.
What: One annual award of $500 (plus a certificate). In years when there
is no qualified and/or worthy applicant, the award will not be given.
When: The award is given annually (started with the 2009 ALISE Conference).

Who: This award is open to any ALISE member who has been a member for no
more than seven years (including years as a student member, if
applicable), at the time the award is given. An individual may only
receive this award once.
How: The award is administered by the ALISE/Norman Horrocks Leadership
Award Committee. Nominations of eligible applicants should be made
directly to the committee chairperson (indicated below) by July 15.
Nomination packages must include: a letter of nomination (no more than
one page, single-spaced), describing the ways in which the nominee has
demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities in professional ALISE
activities (e.g., participation in SIG activities; organization of ALISE
conference events; service on ALISE committees; recruitment or retention
of other new ALISE members; etc.) and noting the date that the nominee
first joined ALISE; and, supporting documentation, including the
nominee’s current CV and letters of support that address the criteria
listed above.

Nominations will be adjudicated by the members of the ALISE/Norman
Horrocks Leadership Award Committee. Results of the competition will be
announced on or before October 1.

Nominations for the 2011 ALISE/Norman Horrocks Leadership Award should
be submitted electronically (as attached PDF, Word or Rich Text files)

Assistant Professor, Valdosta State University, [log in to unmask]
