Economic Society of Australia Awards 2018

Each year the Central Council of the Economic Society of Australia makes three awards to honour the achievements of Australian economists.  Every state Branch of the Society is able to make a nomination for each of the awards. 

The Victorian Branch is currently inviting members to suggest possible nominees for 2018. The objectives and selection criteria for the three awards are included below.  If you would like to suggest someone for an award, please prepare a 1-page statement which addresses how the person’s achievements make them a suitable candidate for the award.  It is important that the statement be written with the selection criteria for the award in mind. The statement should be sent to Branch Secretary Benedict Davies secretary@esavic.org.au  by close of business on Wednesday, 11 April 2018.

The process for determining nominations from the Branch in 2018 is that: 1] A sub-committee of the Branch Council will consider the suggestions from members and make a recommendation to the Council on who should be nominated for each award (The sub-committee is being chaired by Karen Chester. Other members are Brendan Coates, Alex Millmow and Leonora Risse. All are members of the Victorian Branch Council.); and 2] Based on the recommendations from the sub-committee, the final decision on nominees will be made at a Branch Council meeting.
