Award Committee Volunteers Wanted

The YES 2012 coordinators are seeking YES members to form a committee to select outstanding public figures to receive an award for his/her impacts on the connection between geosciences and societal issue. 
The recipient will be awarded this honor at the YES World Congress in Brisbane. This is a short term position, and members of the committee will need to act quickly to formulate nominees for the award. 

Tasks include: nominating one person from each continent; producing a short bio on each nominee (photo and text); contacting the nominee to inform him/her of their nomination; communicating with the Executive team regarding nominations. The bio will be used in a special edition of the Newsletter to showcase each public figure and published online for YES members to review and vote. 

Please contact to volunteer or for more information.
