Yes, membership is required to be nominated or to nominate someone for an award.
No, you may only nominate one person for each award type. You may, however, nominate additional members for different awards.
Yes, you may provide letters of support or co-sign letters of support for up to two nominees in each award.
No, you do not need to start over. Each nomination packet is retained and can be carried forward for one year following the initial submission. If a nominator wants the candidate to be considered the following year, they simply must notify the Society staff and the packet will be transferred to the next year’s awards committee. After that year, the nomination packet will no longer be available.
