Nominations for ovatio/gratulatio at the 2024 Annual Meeting are still open – deadline May 1 2024

Reminder: Nominations for ovationes or gratulationes for 2024 Annual Meeting are due May 1, 2024 (11:59pm ET).

The CAAS Awards Committee warmly invites you to nominate a colleague to be considered for an ovatio or gratulatio, to be lauded at the CAAS October 17-19, 2024 Annual Meeting at The Heldrich Hotel and Conference Center, New Brunswick, NJ

The CAAS Awards Committee accepts nominations drafted by single members in good standing. A CAAS member may submit no more than two nominations each year. 

Current CAAS members who nominated a colleague not selected for an ovatio or gratulatio in the past are welcome to resubmit a revised and updated nomination for 2024.

Recipients of awards will be celebrated with a Latin award script composed by the Latin Citations Committee, which will be read by a colleague of their own choice at the CAAS 2024 Annual Meeting. 

The Awards Committee’s charge is to “select honorees from the CAAS membership who meet the following criteria: long and/or distinguished service to CAAS and/or to the Classics community by those in the CAAS region.”

To nominate a colleague for an ovatio (an ovation and rejoicing of excellence in service to CAAS and to our discipline) or a gratulatio (congratulations and celebration of a colleague’s service to CAAS and to our profession), you are asked to provide the name of the person nominated, accompanied by a brief (one paragraph) rationale for the nominee’s worthiness for an award. 

You may submit your nominations using the google form at this link: (
