SAA members and other former NBS/NIST employees who are not current NIST employees are encouraged to volunteer for the 2021 Portrait Gallery Jury. All are eligible except those who have served on all of the last three juries. The Jury will meet on April 28.
To volunteer for the 2021 Portrait Gallery Jury, please send your name and contact information (address, telephone, and email) to the SAA Portrait Committee at email@example.com or to the Standards Alumni Association office volunteers at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 9, 2021. Please note that prior contact information for the SAA Office (Room A-42 Admin, Mail Stop 0952, NIST, Gaithersburg, MD 20899-0952, telephone 301-975-2486, email email@example.com) is currently not operational.
The SAA Portrait Gallery Committee, after closure of the 2021 nomination process, will propose, for approval of the SAA Board, a balanced jury of retired scientists, engineers, and administrators (of both programmatic and support organizational units), with expertise in areas in which nominations were received, and with fewer than two-thirds continuing from the 2020 jury.
The 2021 Portrait Gallery Jury will evaluate nominations for the NIST Portrait Gallery and recommend no more than 10 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 2020 SAA Newsletter, sent to OU directors, and posted on the SAA website.
