Distinguished Life… Jeppson… Kingery… Purdy… Coble… Spriggs. These are just a few of the awards that will presented to deserving winners in October 2010 in Houston, Texas at the ACerS 112th Annual Meeting.

It sounds like a long ways away, but it’ll be here before you know it, so start thinking of worthy nominees and lining up sponsors and letters of support, and then drafting the actual nominations. Most nomination deadlines for the 2010 awards are January 15, 2010 (except for Fellows). Division, Section, and Class members should check with their respective groups for 2010 nomination deadlines.

Don’t end up in a New Year’s Day panic. Make a resolution now to get your nominations in early and avoid that last minute, nerve-wracking scramble. See individual award pages for details.
