CGSA Outstanding Service Award

Description

The Central Region Group on Student Affairs (CGSA) presents the CGSA Outstanding Service Award to current or former CGSA members (either institutional or individual) who have demonstrated outstanding service to the CGSA.

Outstanding service is defined as significant and sustained leadership or expertise in addressing issues of importance to the CGSA. Nominees for this award shall have demonstrated service to the CGSA and shall have an outstanding record of accomplishment, resourcefulness and dedication to the mission of the CGSA. Areas of service recognition may be in any of the leadership roles of the CGSA. These may include service as a member or official of the Steering Committee, serving in a special role of the CGSA in any of the five areas of Student Affairs, Diversity Affairs, Financial Assistance, Admissions or Student Records, or service on any CGSA Ad Hoc Committees or Meeting Program Committees. It could also include service in National GSA leadership positions providing that service is in a position of representation of the CGSA.

A call for nominations will be announced annually at the CGSA Business meeting during the AAMC Annual meeting. Any CGSA member may submit a nomination. No self-nominations will be considered. Nominations will be submitted to the CGSA Past Chair and must be accompanied by the nominees' curriculum vitae.

Selection Process

The Past Chair and Nominating Committee of the CGSA shall serve as the Screening Committee and forward the names of no more than four finalists to the CGSA Steering Committee for consideration at their Winter meeting. The Steering Committee will select the award recipients for announcement at the spring meeting.
