MARAC’s Distinguished Service Award recognizes members who have made significant contributions to MARAC and to the broader archival profession. Significant contributions to MARAC include service as a MARAC officer, caucus representative, committee member or chair, and even as a frequent session or workshop instructor. Service to the profession includes participating on the board of national or international archival organizations, leading a committee or section of such an organization, writing books or journal articles in the field, serving as a professor or as a workshop presenter, contributing to a State Historical Records Advisory Board, and reviewing applications for granting agencies.
Please note that service to MARAC is weighted more heavily than service to the profession as a whole.
This award is accompanied by a $250 honorarium, provided through the generosity of Hollinger Metal Edge, Inc.
To nominate a member, you must submit the nomination form, the nominee’s resume or curriculum vitae, a letter detailing why the nominee should receive the award, and a second letter of support.
