Awards Chair

⬅ Back to Committee Structure

This role is a relatively well-defined one that might be a good second role for someone in a position with a lower workload, for example Poster Session Chair. The Awards Chair is responsible for handling the community awards, and responsibilities include:

  • 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!
