As reported in the IBS-AR newsletter (February 2012), the Australasian Region of the International Biometric Society created the ‘ALF’ award, named after E.A. (Alf) Cornish who was the first (vice-) president of the Australasian Region, from 1948-1950, and IBS President during 1956-1957. More information about Alf’s career is here.
The award is for recognition of a member in the Australasian Region who has given ‘longtime’ service to the Biometric Society and to the advancement of biometry.
Members will be invited to submit an application to the Secretary with the nomination of a member who may be eligible to be considered. The closing date for nominations is three months before the starting date of our biennial conference, 1 September in 2017. In 2015 the two awardees, Kaye Basford and Brian Cullis, were announced by Ross Darnell, President, at the regional conference (Biometrics by the Harbour) dinner on Wednesday 2 December, 2015.
