Call for Ovationes 2017

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 2017 CAAS ovationes, to be presented at the 2017 October annual meeting. Nominees and nominators need to be CAAS members in good standing. To nominate a candidate to the Awards Committee for an ovatio, please download and complete the nomination form. Send your completed nomination form as an email attachment to the Chair of the  Awards Committee by May 15, 2016. Thank you for assisting the committee in its work.
