NEW! THIS YEAR
A CASE Member may serve as a Nominator for only one nomination and as a Reference (Member Reference or External Reference) for only one nomination. The following pertains to the references to be provided in support of each nomination:
-- The Membership Committee makes decisions to name a nominee to the election ballot based on a review of the detailed nomination.
-- Members may be scanning the information provided on the “Candidate Summary” (includes name, title, organization, education, and Citation) to determine how they will vote on each candidate, as compared to reviewing a candidate’s complete nomination.
-- CITATION: It is most important that the CITATION for each nominee be concise and make the case for why a candidate should be elected – identify high impact and specific contributions of the nominee. CITATIONS are limited to 50 words.
-- Make nominations clear and understandable for those not familiar with the nominee’s field of expertise.
The Nomination Period is October 1 - November 16, 2016. All nominations will be reviewed by the Academy’s Membership Committee. As determined by the CASE Governing Council this year, based on the 2015 Bylaw amendment, the Membership Committee will select no more than 24 candidates to be named to the Election Ballot. The Membership Election will be held electronically from January 17 – February 14.
Please let me know if you have any questions about the nomination process or information required.
