CPAE Career Achievement Award

The Career Achievement Award recognizes the scholarly contributions of individuals who, over a sustained period of years, have deepened the knowledge base of the field through a solid, sustained, scholarly agenda.  Offered every three years, beginning in 2001, CPAE will honor one individual who has produced a body of work regarding a particular problem, topic, or area within the discipline over the course of at least 7 to 10 years. Two key questions will guide the awarding of this honor:

•  To what extent has the research moved us ahead and brought us to a greater understanding and/or opportunities to seriously reconsider previous understanding?

•  To what extent does the work of this individual stand as a solid example of and offer encouragement for progressive research for the field?

Nominations Process

A person must be nominated by someone other than herself or himself. 

Nominations should be in writing, with a clear rationale for why the person should be considered. Postal mail, email, and faxed letters are all acceptable means for the nomination process. The nominee's complete name, and all pertinent contact information (address, email, telephone number) should be included in the letter of nomination, so that the individual may be contacted regarding the review process.

The person making the nomination will contact the individual being nominated to seek his/her approval. The person making the nomination is responsible for furnishing the committee with five sets of supporting documentation, which must include: (a) the nomination letter; (b) the person's vita, (c) two additional references, and (d) the signed letter accepting the nomination.
