Nominations for 2016 GBW Awards

Nominations are now open for the two annual GBW awards: "The Laura Young Award" and "The Lifetime Achievement Award." The former is presented to a GBW member who has made an outstanding contribution to the Guild's mission. The latter is presented to an accomplished person in the field, not necessarily a member of GBW, and will confer to that person, honorary membership as well.  Click here to see previous awardees. 
Current elected officers of the Guild are not eligible for nomination. We recommend that you send your recommendations to any member of the 2016 Awards Committee, or by mail to the Chair, postmarked by May 15th:
