ACF Carper Award process change

Post by ashwin99 » Mon Jan 14, 2019 7:33 pm

ACF has amended its constitution to change the process for selecting candidates for the Carper Award; these changes will be in effect starting with the 2019 Carper Award.

Mainly, the proposal transfers responsibility for conducting Carper Award votes from the Nationals head editor to a committee consisting of emeritus, full, and provisional members of ACF who have won the Carper Award. This committee can set reasonable voting procedures from year to year. Additionally, there can be multiple winners of the Carper Award, either when there is a tie for first place or by decision of the committee.

You can see the entire details on our constitution:

Please post here or let me know if you have any questions about the changes.
