Hall of Excellence Nominations – Due August 15
Nominations should include name and current address, date of birth, and date of death (if applicable). Include the candidates significant contributions to fisheries management and location of the work. Those selected for the HOE must have made significant contributions in fisheries management, management-oriented research, development of methods and equipment, administration of management programs, or the promotion of fisheries resource conservation, protection, and management. The more detailed the nomination materials, the better the HOE Committee is able to judge the worthiness of the candidate. Candidates selected for induction need to provide a black and white photo (head and shoulders) to be displayed on the plaque. Selection to the HOE is the highest honor given by FMS. Take the time to consider those individuals who have been instrumental in structuring your career and nominate them if you deem them deserving. Think about some of the real success stories in fisheries management and focus on the individuals instrumental in making those successes happen. All too often our efforts go unrewarded and there is no greater reward than being recognized by your peers.
