2014 AATI Distinguished Service Awards Call for Nominations

Mar 18, 2014 1943

AATI's two Distinguished Service Awards recognize and further encourage the achievements and contributions of AATI members for distinguished teaching and/or published research in the fields of Italian language, literature, and civilization.

Any AATI member who has made a significant contribution to the building of the Association, to the fulfilment of its objectives, or to the development of the profession can be nominated for these awards. The two awards cover the following categories: 1) K-12; and 2) College/University.

In 2012, the AATI Executive Council approved guidelines for the two Distinguished Service Awards. They are reproduced here.

1. Nominators must submit a letter of nomination with an explanation of why the individual deserves the award. Moreover, nominators must obtain three letters of support as a part of a complete documentation packet.
2. Nominators must submit a current curriculum vitae of the person nominated, which will be obtained from the nominee with his or her consent.
3. Nominators must designate the award for which the person is being nominated, i.e., nominators must state explicitly in their letters of nomination if the nominee is being named for College/University or for K-12. In the event of a cross-nomination, e.g., College/University nominee for K-12, the specific service of the nominee to the other level must be clearly identified.
4. Nominators must provide appropriate contact information (nominee, nominator).
5. The Distinguished Service Committee will NOT solicit materials. These materials must be submitted in an email to the Chair of the Distinguished Service Award Committee as a set of attachments prior to the designated deadline.
6. Nominators will be expected to submit complete files if they wish their nominee to receive full consideration by the Committee.
7. There are no self-nominations.

Please submit your nominations and supporting documentation to me by no later than May 12, 2014 at [email protected]

Paul Colilli, Chair
Distinguished Service Awards Committee
