Introducing the ASIS&T Distinguished Member Program

ASIS&T is pleased to announce a new program designed to recognize our most committed and loyal members. The ASIS&T Distinguished Member program will recognize members who have had a significant impact on the association and in the field of information science. The designation ASIS&T Distinguished Member is a signature recognition and comes as a result of hard work, commitment to personal development, and a dedication to excellence in the profession.  This elite status is attained by those with a demonstrated commitment to mastering their profession through sustained educational pursuits and a proven track record of service to both their community and the information science and technology field.

The ASIS&T Distinguished Member program recognition is based on professional experience as well as significant achievements in the information science and technology field through professional service and leadership, and scholarly or professional contributions. It is expected that a Distinguished Member serves as a mentor and role model, guiding career development and excelling in the field.

Members who have been identified a meeting the basic membership and professional development criteria for the ASIS&T Distinguished Member Program will be contacted with information on how to apply for this program. If you believe you are eligible and have not been contacted by the end of April, please reach out to Terrence Curtiss. ASIS&T staff will work with those eligible but not qualified to identify opportunities for them to earn the points required for the designation.
