Starting with the election of Fellows in 2006, nomination and
voting will only be done electronically.
Eligibility to nominate: Any member of the Econometric
Society can nominate candidates for Fellow.
(Step 1) Initiate a nomination by completing a nomination
The information required includes the name, position and address
of the nominee; his/her service to the Econometric Society; a six-item bibliography; and a nomination statement
(maximum 125 words*) that summarizes the main scientific achievements
of the nominee. Note that publications in the Society journals, invited or contributed presentations at its conferences, or refereeing or assessment of papers for conferences are not regarded as service to the Society. Editorial responsibilities, conference organization, or Econometric Society committee membership are acceptable.
Note that even after you have submitted the nomination,
you will be able to change the information on the form.
(Step 2) Invite endorsements: You will be instructed how
to do this once you have submitted a nomination form. Not more
than 10 endorsers, including the initiator, can be listed on the
nomination form distributed with the ballot. If more than 10 names
are received, the initiator will select the subset of names to
appear on the form. If Y endorsements are received, then the phrase
"plus X additional endorsements" will appear on the
form, where X=Y-10.
Rules: If three or more Fellows endorse a candidate, then
the candidate's name will automatically appear on the ballot of
that year. Otherwise, the Nominating Committee for Fellows will
vote to determine whether the candidate will appear on the ballot.
Candidates who fail to win election in a given year are not carried
over automatically to the next year's ballot and must be renominated
by the standard procedure in order to appear on the ballot in
any subsequent year. For more details see Chapter 5 in the Rules and Procedures.
Deadline: The deadline for submitting nomination endorsements
is April 15,
