Moving Spirit Award for Chapters
Purpose of the Award
The Moving Spirit Award has been established to recognize outstanding geographic chapter volunteers or student chapter faculty advisors who have been "moving spirits" in their chapters.
The award will be an 11x8 mounted plaque signed by the Chapters/Fora Committee Chair. A letter of congratulations, in a form suitable for sending to each recipient's superior, will accompany those awards not delivered in person. The letter of congratulations should be brief but should include the following text, together with the formal citation (if space permits) or a brief explanation of the reason(s) for the award. The certificate will be presented at the Chapter/Fora Committee Breakfast of the national INFORMS meetings. Awards will be shipped via UPS to those recipients unable to receive the award at the national meeting.
An account of the award, citation, recipient, and qualifying service shall be published in OR/MS Today.
