The CSA shall have an Awards and Recognition Committee appointed by the President, normally chaired by the Past President and confirmed by the Executive before each AGM. The Awards and Recognition Committee will seek nominations from among the CSA's regular members for its awards. The Awards and Recognition Committee report to the Executive shall be final. *** note for 2018 only because our meeting is late in the year, the nomination deadlines for Early Career and Fellow awards and the Executive nominations will be Aug 15.  Other deadlines remain at April 15 because those recipients need to be able to submit abstracts to the meeting for a June deadline.  ***
