It’s Honors and Awards season, and SC/MLA would like to recognize our exceptional members! The first two awards with upcoming deadlines (April 1) are Honorary Membership and the T. Mark Hodges Outstanding Service Award. As of this post, no one has applied for either of these so please apply or nominate a colleague! Only good can come to those that apply! Submit nominations to the Chair of the Honors & Awards Committee.
The Honorary Membership award recognizes a retired member for significant and consistent contributions to the Southern Chapter or to the profession. Significant contributions to the chapter may be defined as serving in elected or appointed offices, on chapter committees, or in developing chapter meetings. Significant contributions to the profession may be at the local, chapter, regional, or national level. The winner will be approved during the SC/MLA Executive Committee meeting at the MLA Annual Meeting. More details about Honorary Membership criteria are on the SC/MLA website.
Do you know someone who has been an SC/MLA member for at least 10 years and has illustrated dedicated and continuing service to the association? Is there someone you know who has made a lasting impact in the association? Then please consider nominating them (or yourself) for the T. Mark Hodges Outstanding Service Award! The purpose of this award is to honor the memory of T. Mark Hodges and to recognize a chapter member whose service to the chapter and profession have been exceptional and of lasting importance. The awards recipient will be announced at the SC/MLA Annual Meeting, and presented with a plaque and $250. For information on the nominating process, please go to the SC/MLA website.
