The SME Distinguished Member Award

A candidate for Distinguished Member must have been a full member of SME for at least 15 years. A candidate must have demonstrated significant and sustained contributions to the minerals industry and to SME. There must be some contributions to both the industry and SME, though significant and sustained contributions can be to either one.

Outstanding service to SME may be to a section, a region, a technical division, committees or as a representative of SME and the industry to the public. Outstanding contributions to the industry may be as a leader in exploration, production, manufacturing, environment, basic sciences, engineering applications, education, management or public relations. Contributions may be evidenced by patents, technical papers, educational activities or managerial contributions. Other contributions may be in the development of exploration techniques, mineral properties, mineral processes, major engineering projects, mineral-related equipment and environmental solutions.

Candidates may be nominated by any two SME Distinguished Members (each knowing the member under different circumstances), any two local section executives (must include a chair or past chair) or five members of SME. Nomination forms must be received at SME by Monday, December 1st.

Members receiving this award must attend the annual meeting to accept the honor at the SME Dinner. For more information, please contact Angie Grace at 303-948-4230 or email
