Join a TMS Awards Committee

TMS Award Committee members evaluate nominations/applications for TMS awards and work with other committee members to select award recipients. Volunteers are matched with the award committee that has the greatest need and best suits their expertise.

Time Commitment

The majority of award recipients are determined from May to August. The time needed varies based on the number of applicants for an award. Volunteers must have time to carefully review each nomination packet or application and to thoroughly evaluate each candidate. Volunteers are also expected to participate in conference calls with other committee members to determine award recipients.
