Distinguished Career Award Call for Nominations

Call for Nominations
2018 Midwest Archaeology Conference
Distinguished Career Award

NomNominations are being solicited for the 2018 Midwest Archaeological Conference, Inc. (MAC) Distinguished Career Award. The award recognizes an archaeologist who has demonstrated excellence and contributed significantly and regularly to the advancement of Midwestern archaeology. This award is the highest one made by MAC and truly honors someone with lifetime commitment to Midwestern archaeology and achievement in areas such as research, publication, collection and site preservation, program development, and education. We encourage everyone to consider and nominate those senior archaeologists who have participated in archaeology for a substantial part of their career and contributed significantly and broadly to Midwestern archaeology. The nominee must be alive at the time of nomination and does not have to be a member of the MAC at the time of nomination, but typically will have been an active member and contributed to the mission of the organization during their career. The award winner will be recognized at the 2018 MAC Annual Business Meeting and will be invited to comment on his/her career. An award citation will be published on the MAC Web site. To nominate an archaeologist, please send a letter explaining why the nominee is qualified for the Distinguished Career Award, and forward his/her current CV. Letters of support must be included with the nomination packet. Previous years nominations that were not elected for award can be updated and resubmitted. Please send your nominations by JULY 20, 2018 to MAC President Jodie O’Gorman (ogorman@msu.edu) in a pdf format. The MAC Executive Committee will make the final selection.
