The Executive of the CGU solicits nominations for the CGU Meritorious Service Award. The CGU Meritorious Service Award recognizes extraordinary and unselfish contributions to the operation and management of the Canadian Geophysical Union by a member of the CGU. All members of the CGU are eligible for this award, although the award is not normally given to someone who has received another major award (e.g. the J. Tuzo Wilson Medal). Nominations for the CGU Meritorious Service Award may be submitted by CGU members at any time. The award is made by the CGU Executive based on recommendations from the CGU Awards Committee, and is based on lifetime contributions to CGU activities.
