Call for Volunteers for Portrait Gallery Jury
Retired SAA members are encouraged to volunteer for the 2013 Portrait Gallery Jury. All are eligible except those who have served on all of the last three juries. The Jury will meet at NIST Gaithersburg for one day in late March or early April, the date yet to be decided.
To volunteer for the 2013 Portrait Gallery Jury, please send your name and contact information (address, telephone and email) to the SAA Office by mail; by telephone at 301-975-2486; or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 8, 2013.
The SAA Portrait Gallery Committee, after closure of the 2013 nomination process, will propose, for approval of the SAA Board, a jury with balanced representation of retired scientists, engineers, and administrators (of both programmatic and support organizational units), with representation from current NIST units in whose areas nominations were received, and with fewer than 2/3 continuing from the 2012 jury.
The 2013 Portrait Gallery Jury will evaluate nominations for the NIST Portrait Gallery and recommend no more than ten nominees to the NIST Director.
The Portrait Gallery process is described in the Call for Nominations and Instructions for Nominations, which are published in the December, 2012 SAA Newsletter and posted on the SAA website.
