Calum S. Muir Memorial Award For Member
The Calum S. Muir Memorial Award honors someone who has made outstanding long-term contributions in cancer registration and cancer surveillance and that the contributions are substantive. The Calum Muir Award is intended to recognize outstanding leaders in the field of cancer registration and cancer surveillance with a life-time achievement award. Preference is for the recipient to be an active member of NAACCR with a long-term commitment to the association. Nominations are sought annually from the NAACCR membership-at-large. The award may be bestowed once each year, usually at the Annual Conference, but the Board may opt not to bestow this award. The intent is that this is not a posthumous award. Other than for truly exceptional service, sitting Board members and NAACCR staff should be excluded from eligibility of this award.
