Section honors committees

Selection committees

Every honor within AGU’s honors program, including Union awards, medals, and prizes, Fellows, and section honors, has a selection committee—some section honors share committees. Each selection committee is responsible for reviewing honors nominations and submissions and selecting the winner. Selection committees operate on an annual or biannual basis, depending on the award.
