MSOM DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD
Nominations due by April 24, 2020
The MSOM Society is now considering nominations for the MSOM Distinguished Service Award. The MSOM Distinguished Service Award was approved by the members at Spring Business Meeting in 1996 in Atlanta and has been given annually since 1997. The award was created to recognize individuals whose distinguished service to MSOM has helped to advance significantly the goals and objectives of the Society. The award is given annually, usually to a member of MSOM. Typically, recipients of this award have provided exceptional leadership in the society through multiple roles, including: journal editor, MSOM Society / SIG officer, or chair of an MSOM / SIG conference. At the discretion of the Award Committee, it may be given to a group of individuals (at least one of whom belongs to MSOM) who have worked jointly on a common project (in which case the prize money is divided among the group). Elected MSOM officers are ineligible for the award during their terms of office. The award is accompanied by a plaque and a $400 honorarium.
Written nominations are to be sent electronically to the Award Committee Chair, President-Elect Atalay Atasu (firstname.lastname@example.org), by April 24, 2020. The award winner(s) will be announced at the summer MSOM conference and presentation of the award will take place at the business meeting during the fall INFORMS conference.
