Each year at its annual meeting the Association presents ovationes to members who have been selected by the Awards Committee for their significant service to the discipline and the organization. The ovatio is read in Latin by a colleague close to the honoree at the banquet, while copies of the ovatio in Latin and English are distributed to attendees.
The ovatio recognizes long and distinguished service to CAAS and/or to the classics community by those in the CAAS region, especially by those retiring or concluding a long term of service.
The Awards Committee is now accepting nominations for 2016 CAAS Ovationes, to be presented at the 2016 October annual meeting. Nominees and nominators need to be CAAS members in good standing.

Send your completed nomination form as an email attachment to the Chair of the Awards Committee by March 1, 2015. Thank you for assisting the committee in its work.
