Call for nominations for Fellowship of the Chartered ABS
The Chartered ABS would like to recognise senior academics, professional services staff, those in associated roles and leaders outside of academia who have made and continue to make a significant contribution to the advancement of the Chartered ABS and its mission. We are welcoming nominations for this year's Fellowships until Friday 20 October 2023.
Academic Fellows will be awarded to academics in recognition of exceptional service to the Chartered ABS, its mission and/or its membership.
Professional Fellows will be awarded to those working in professional services and associated roles in recognition of exceptional service to the Chartered ABS, its mission and/or its membership.
Industry Fellows will be awarded to recognise exceptional service and achievement in the world of business and organisational practice across the private, public and charitable sectors, and/or in recognition of exceptional service to the Chartered ABS, its mission and/or its membership.
Regardless of the route, they will all be known as 'Chartered ABS Fellows'. For Academic and Professional Fellows, the award and recognition will be for the Fellow’s lifetime. For Industry Fellows, the award will be active for three years, renewable on a three-year rolling basis.
In all cases we are asking for nominations, not self-applications.
