Honorary Membership Nominations 2022

Mar 23, 2022 | Featured, News

We are now welcoming nominations for Honorary Membership of the Society. Honorary Membership is a discretionary award to those who have been a Full Member of the Society for at least 10 preceding consecutive years and who have made an exceptional contribution towards the Society’s objectives.

Honorary Membership cannot be requested by an individual; they must be nominated for the award. We expect the proposer to notify the nominee in advance that they are submitting the nomination. Honorary Membership nominations will be reviewed by the Grants & Awards Committee in May and a maximum of two nominees will be proposed to BSSS Council. Following Council’s decision, members of the Society must vote on the proposal at the next General Meeting in August at the World Congress of Soil Science. Both the nominator and the nominee will be notified of the outcome: either unsuccessful or the nominee being proposed to the next General Meeting.

If you would like to nominate an Honorary Member at the next General Meeting, please complete and return the nomination form to admin@soils.org.uk by Friday 29 April.
