Internal Committee Discussion

Mandate and terms of reference

CASCA delivers five different awards and prizes over two years whose descriptions are available on the Scholarships and Awards Page (for students) and the Post PhD Awards Page. These awards are delivered during the Annual General Assembly (AGM). The Awards committee manages the Beals and Martin awards, the Petrie lecture and the Plaskett medal (awarded jointly with the RASC). The committee will be composed of seven members in order to cover as best as possible the varied research fields found in our community. Hence the Awards committee will:

  1. Request candidacies from the community by 1st November of the year preceding the AGM for the awards and prizes that will be given that next year using e.g. the CASCA exploder and website and e-Cass;
  2. Inform the CASCA Board of the winner of the different competitions as soon as the deadlines permit so that arrangements and coordination can be made with the AGM local organizing committee;
  3. Be ready to respond to special requests from the CASCA Board;
  4. Provide the CASCA Board with a citation for each award, suitable for publication by the CASCA Press Officer;
  5. The committee Chair is normally invited to introduce the award winners at the AGM;
  6. Provide a report of activities and issues once a year to the Board in advance of the CASCA AGM. The Board may request an interim report if the need arises. The report will include: current members and term, suggestions for new members and/or chair, brief report of activities, any issues, questions, recommendations or requested actions for the Board.
