AEC Member of the Year Award

This award was created by ANZCCART to recognise the excellent service offered to Animal Ethics Committees by their members and in 2017 the award was extended to recognise two exceptional members each year, one in Australia and one in New Zealand. Each award recipient will be decided by the ANZCCART Board of each country and accordingly, nominations should now be sent to the appropriate office so they can be judged in accordance with the guidelines. All award winners will receive a certificate of recognition. In addition, ANZCCART will cover the costs associated with the winner’s attendance at the current year’s ANZCCART Conference which may be held in New Zealand. The prize includes economy airfares, conference registration (including all social functions that are part of the conference programme) and accommodation at the conference venue for the recipient only.

The nomination form which includes details of the award and the eligibility criteria is available through the link for the relevant country Australia or New Zealand.
