The Leadership Award recognizes an ANS member for outstanding and sustained service to the Society in the areas of leadership, governance, or direction of the ANS. This award is primarily intended to recognize the services of members of the governance committees of ANS. Multiple awards are possible in a year when exceptionally qualified individuals are nominated.

This award consists of an engraved plaque, which is presented during the ANS Annual Conference.


The ANS Leadership Award was established to recognize substantial contributions over a prolonged period of time. This recognition is made when, in the opinion of the Honors and Awards Committee, the duration and significance of the candidate’s contributions warrant that distinction.
