Call for Nominations
Constance L. Percy Awards
In March, the NAACCR Board of Directors considers nominations for two of the most prestigious awards in the cancer surveillance community, The Calum Muir Award, and the Constance L. Percy Award. These awards, described below, are presented at the NAACCR Annual Conference in June. Please take the time and nominate a NAACCR member who has demonstrated leadership and commitment to cancer surveillance. Please include information about why you think your candidate should be considered for the award. This information will be distributed to the Board and serve as the basis of voting. Nominations should be submitted in writing to bkohler@NAACCR.org by MARCH 13. Thank you for your participation.
Please note that current Board Members while not excluded from consideration, are by tradition, deferred from consideration until after their term has been completed.
The Calum Muir Award
The purpose of the Calum Muir Award is to honor someone who has made long-term, substantive contributions in cancer registration. Preference is for the recipient to be an active member of NAACCR with a long-term commitment to the organization. The intent is that it not be a posthumous award. The award will be bestowed each year at the NAACCR Annual Conference to a recipient selected by the Board of Directors.
The Constance L. Percy Award for Distinguished Service
The purpose of the Constance L. Percy Award for Distinguished Service is to recognize an individual who contributed exceptional volunteer service to NAACCR during the past 12 months, or sustained current and long-term contributions to the organization. The award may be bestowed once each year, usually at the NAACCR Annual Conference, to a recipient selected by the Board of Directors. More than one award may be given in any year. No limit is placed on the number of times an individual may be recognized by a Constance L. Percy Award for Distinguished Service.
