Guidance for Nominators and AGU Selection Committees

Nominators and potential nominees for AGU Section Awards and Lectures, Fellows Program, and Union Awards, Medals and Prizes are urged to restrain from contacting members of their respective award selection committee while the AGU nomination and selection process is in progress.  Casual contact with award selection committee members is in no way prohibited; however, persistent or frequent contact on topics related to the award nomination could potentially be viewed as an attempt to influence the selection process.  AGU award selection committee members who believe they are being unnecessarily contacted by nominators or nominees, are urged to notify their selection committee chair, or to contact Ethics@AGU.org for follow-up reminders or warnings to the offending party.
