Fellows Nominations Open

The Board of Directors voted to accept a change in the Guidelines for Fellows Nominations during their meeting at the 37th International Symposium on Combustion. The change impacts nominees from industry and allows one supporting letter to be provided by a non-member of The Combustion Institute if such a letter is deemed by the nominator to be essential in order to provide crucial information about the nominee.

Nomination packages should follow the Call for Nominations and be sent to Office@CombustionInstitute.org. Packages will be accepted until 23:59 EST on 30 September. Information will be reviewed and sent to the Selection Committee on 2 October for their discussion and decisions. An announcement of the newly-elected Fellows will be made at the end of January, 2019.
