Each year an award review committee is appointed to review all nominations for these awards, with the exception of the Buford Watson award. The Buford Watson award will be reviewed by the KACM Executive Committee and a former Buford Watson award recipient. The committee may contact nominees or others to collect additional information relating to the merits of each nominee. The committee will present a report and recommendation to the KACM Board of Directors prior to the Fall Board Meeting. The KACM Board will make the final selection. The recipients of the awards will be announced at KACM's Annual Fall Conference. The awards will be presented at a meeting of the recipient's governing body by the KACM president and a delegation of colleagues.
