The 2020 nomination process for the election of Fellows opened in January 2020. The primary nominator is a CAHS Fellow. In addition to providing a letter of nomination that introduces the nominee and co-nominators, the primary nominator accepts responsibility to co-ordinate the entire application.
Nominations are adjudicated by the Fellowship Committee in April. Nominees are advised of outcomes early in May but information is embargoed until Induction in September. New Fellows will be inducted into the Academy at the dinner ceremony on Thursday, September 17, 2020 during the Annual General Meeting at the Omni Hotel Mont-Royal, Montreal, Quebec.
A large number of outstanding candidates are nominated each year. It is inevitable that some are not elected in the first year. Nominations are active for three years and updates to the original nomination package are accepted through this period. What constitutes an update? Well, it may be the replacement of one piece of the original submission or the entire nomination package. Annual solicitations for updated materials are made to the primary nominators.
Due to complications surrounding COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) regarding travel restrictions, and quarantines mentioned to us by some of our Fellows, we have decided to extend the deadline for receiving nominations to Wednesday March 18th at 5:00 pm EDT.
If you have recently submitted a nomination form you can provide us with the changes up until the 18th at 5:00 pm EDT.
