The CGU Meritorious Service Award recognizes extraordinary and unselfish contributions to the operation and management of the Canadian Geophysical Union by a CGU member.
All members of the CGU are eligible for this award, although it is not normally given to someone who has received another major award (e.g., the J. Tuzo Wilson Medal). Nominations for the CGU Meritorious Service Award may be submitted by CGU members at any time. The award is made by the CGU Executive based on recommendations from the CGU Awards Committee, and is based on lifetime contributions to CGU activities.
The nomination package requires a nomination letter summarizing the outstanding contributions of the nominee, letters of recommendation from colleagues, and a current CV of the nominee. Nominations should be submitted by December 12 of the year preceding the Annual Meeting. Additional details concerning the nomination process can be obtained from the Chair of the CGU Awards Committee.
