The ASPA Section on Intergovernmental Administration & Management (SIAM) is soliciting nominations for the section’s annual Donald C. Stone Practitioner Award. Since 1981, SIAM has recognized outstanding practitioners for their contributions to intergovernmental management. The award will be presented to one practitioner at the 2017 annual ASPA meeting in Denver. The criteria for the award include:
- Significant contributions to the field of intergovernmental management over a substantial period of time.
- Contributions that have made an impact in the field of intergovernmental management as a whole rather than on a specific organization, institution or function.
Nominations for the SIAM Stone Practitioner Award are now being accepted. Nominations should include the name and institutional affiliation of the nominee and of the nominator, a short statement explaining the nominee’s contributions to intergovernmental management commensurate with the criteria for the award, and contact information for both the nominee and the nominator. Nominees and nominators need not be members of SIAM.
Please submit your nominations electronically to award committee chair Christopher Hawkins at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions may also be directed to Dr. Hawkins. For the nomination to be considered by the committee, please submit your nomination before 5:00 pm, December 29, 2017.
