The selection will be made by the APA’s Executive Committee, enhanced for this purpose by the Vice President for Outreach and the Chair of the Development Committee (unless they happen to be members of the Executive Committee), at its summer meeting by conference call. The Committee’s recommendation will be presented for decision to the Full APA Board at its September meeting. The Award will be announced and presented at the subsequent Annual Meeting of the APA in January.
The Award will consist of an inscribed gift from the Association.
