RSS Honours - Celebrating the work of RSS fellows
Honours Committee members
Chair: Andy Garrett (President)
Sylvia Richardson (immediate past President)
Search Committee members for 2024 awards
Through our medals and prizes, we want to celebrate the breadth of talent throughout the Society and the discipline. Nominations can be made by individual RSS fellows as well as our committees, sections, and special interest and local groups. This year we are also appointing a search committee to seek out and nominate candidates to ensure the process is as inclusive as possible.
Our Honours Committee, chaired by our president, considers the nominations according to the criteria for each award. Award winners are announced in March each year, and this is followed by an awards ceremony at the RSS annual conference in September.
If you know someone who is deserving of an RSS honour, do not hesitate to nominate them! We are excited to recognise and represent the wide range of excellence across the statistics community.
Please refer to the Guidance Notes for submitting a nomination and complete the relevant nomination form (attached to each award description) which details the criteria necessary for consideration. Nominations should be submitted by 31 October 2023. Full instructions are included on the form.
