As we approach the exciting launch of AVLIC 2016 in Fredericton, New Brunswick we are also getting close to that time where we acknowledge and celebrate the colleagues in our field who are making a difference.
Is there someone who has influenced your career in a positive way? Have you worked with a colleague who consistently gives you meaningful feedback and is supportive of the work you do? Do you have a confidante who understands ethics and professionalism like no one else? If you answered yes to these questions then this person is worthy of the Phyllis Joynt Mentorship Award!!
Do you know of an AVLIC member who seems to be on more committees than you can count? Or when a question about AVLIC or the profession comes to mind, you know exactly whom to ask? Can you think of someone who has given selflessly of his or her time and talents to promote the aims of AVLIC and the profession? If you can think of someone who fits this bill then this person is worthy of the Richard W. Letourneau Service Award.
Have you asked yourself who the movers and shakers are in this field? Perhaps you’ve thought to yourself, “If it weren’t for so-and-so this profession wouldn’t be where it is today”. When you think of someone who is an ambassador for the profession of ASL-English interpretation and AVLIC, who comes to mind? It’s this person you should nominate for the Edward C. Bealer Award of Merit.
Now that we’ve got you thinking, we want you to go to the AVLIC website at www.avlic.ca , click on “About AVLIC” and then click on “AVLIC Awards”. Here you will find all the information you need to nominate a colleague for one of the above-mentioned awards. When considering a submission, keep in mind that the selection committees are not looking for an A-plus thesis – they simply want honest opinions about colleagues who go above and beyond and deserve recognition and accolades for their contribution. We know there are so many people out their making a difference and we are sure you can think of at least one person who is deserving of an award. Please take a little bit of time to nominate someone, it could end up being one of the highlights of his or her career!
