Awards Chair

This role is a relatively well-defined one, that would be a good second role for someone in one of the positions with a lower workload, like the poster team. The Awards chair would be responsible for handling the community awards, and responsibilities would include:

  • Attend the fortnightly (weekly later on) online meetings with the committee as much as possible
  • Canvass nominations for the RSE Awards (Impact, Rising Star, Training & Education)
  • Assemble a panel from the community to judge the awards
  • Develop judging criteria for each category
  • Research and organise the purchase of interesting, unique awards for the winners – preferably by artists local to the conference location
  • Present those awards at the conference!
