2018 Hunt SMA Sustained Outstanding Service Award

See Past Winners Here

Nominations for the 2018 Hunt SMA Sustained Outstanding Service Award are due by April 20th, 2018

SMA’s Mission Statement “We create value for our members, organizations, and society through professional development, high-impact scholarship and teaching, engaging programs, and deliberate, socially responsible acts. We do this while maintaining a sense of community that involves nurturing members, building collaborations, enhancing life-long friendships, and making a difference with our activities.”

In keeping with SMA’s mission, tradition, and Jerry Hunt’s legacy, the 2018 James G. (Jerry) Hunt Sustained Outstanding Service Award (SOSA) seeks to recognize an individual who has provided continued outstanding service to SMA. This honor is awarded based upon: (1) magnitude/impact of the nominee’s contributions to SMA, (2) variety of contributions to SMA, and (3) length of service to SMA.

The Hunt Award recognizes individuals who have consistently helped SMA reach its goals and mission over a period of years. The individuals recognized must have made important, sustained, and current contributions to SMA, including, but not limited to, elected office (e.g., board member, treasurer, secretary), appointed position (e.g., track chairs, committees) and volunteer service (e.g., paper reviewers, session chairs and discussants) as well as extraordinary contributions to SMA (e.g., local arrangements, financial contributions). The winner of this award should be either active or recently active in the Southern Management Association. The award winner will be recognized at the 2018 SMA meeting. A notice with the winner's photo and contributions will be featured on the SMA webpage.
