Committee Descriptions

Awards Committee

The committee will review potential candidates from the among Fellows and members in good standing (current or emeritus) who have made, in the opinion of the committee, substantial contributions to the Society. The SABI Service Medal is awarded to a member of the society who has made extraordinary volunteer contributions to the mission and day to day operations of the society. It is not required that this type of award be given every year.

Committee Chair: Dr. Brian Herts, Cleveland Clinic

Bylaws Committee

Maintain and reevaluate the bylaws annually, and ad hoc as required by special circumstances. Assure the bylaws mature with the society. Evaluate and maintain the SOP templates for SABI committees, minimally every three years. Evaluate all committees SOP changes prior to board review for adherence to the bylaws. Once committees complete the SOP, this committee would be the first to review prior to the Board. Upon review, the bylaws committee may communicate any suggested changes with the relevant committee chair. The bylaws committee would then make suggestions/recommendations regarding the document to the board. (NOTE: Any committee that requests changes to the individual SOP, must use track changes to make it easier for review.) Evaluate all the committee SOPs approximately every three years. Approximately one third of the committee SOP's will be reviewed each year for adherence to the current bylaws.
