This award serves to recognize and reward ASCLS members who have demonstrated their leadership potential to the organization, and to provide these members with structured mentoring.
The Key to the Future Program is administered by the ASCLS Leadership Development Committee and is intended to assist constituent societies in the development of potential leaders to serve at local, state, regional and national levels of the Society. Additionally, the program encourages appointments and nominations of these highly motivated members to positions of responsibility within the organization that will further their leadership development.
Award: Recipients receive recognition and a unique Key to the Future pin at the annual ASCLS meeting. Constituent societies are encouraged to appoint/elect awardees as delegates to the ASCLS Annual Meeting.
Each constituent society should recognize their nominees by announcing their names at the constituent society's annual Awards Ceremony and presenting them with a unique item designated exclusively for this purpose. The names of the winners should be published in the constituent society newsletter.
