First awarded in 1977, Omicron Sigma is the ASCLS President's Honor Roll for Outstanding Service. It provides lasting recognition of those dedicated members who volunteer their personal resources, time and energy to ASCLS. Recognition is at three levels: national, regional, and constituent society. This allows constituent society presidents, regional directors, and the ASCLS President to recognize members for outstanding service.
Eligibility: The nominee must be a current member of ASCLS as of December 31.
Nominations: There is no limitation on the number of ASCLS members who can be recognized by the President, Regional Directors, and constituent society presidents. A member who is active at all three levels, National, Regional and Constituent Society can be recognized at all three levels.
Award: All nominees receive a ribbon at the ASCLS Annual Meeting.
Nominations deadline: April 1
Application Process: The National President, Regional Directors, and Constituent Society Presidents will enter recipient names using the on-line submission process available after January 1.
