Announcing Magpie Kudos

It was suggested by a member that the Tamarack Award for Volunteer of the Year and the president’s Certificates of Recognition are well and good, but they don’t provide an opportunity for the membership to have a say in thanking people.

And so we created the Magpie Kudos award. It’s a fun, easy, and distinctive way for a member to thank another member who has made a difference to them. As an award giver, you simply fill out the short form with the name of the recipient and a few sentences on what you would like to thank them for. The more specific, the more effective the award. You can even express your gratitude anonymously.

The award recipient will receive an attractive, archive-worthy thank-you email, and recognition in an upcoming issue of the Bulletin.

To give a Magpie Kudos, visit the Member Dashboard at any time and look for the Magpie Kudos link. Or follow the link here.

Ewart-Daveluy Award Submissions: Deadline Extended to March 10

Thinking of submitting for an award? You have more time!

We have extended the deadline to March 10, 2021 to send the nomination form. Last year we had a record number of applications, and we hope to have even more this year.

It has never been easier to apply. The submission costs $30. You will need to send a PDF of the published book, and if you wish, you may also submit the documents you sent to your publisher. The award is open to Canadians and residents of Canada, and the book must have been published in 2019 or 2020.

Feedback will be provided to up to three runners-up. Our committee of five experienced indexers will work together to identify index features that shine and those that need a bit more polishing. This year, our guest reviewer is Kate Mertes, a frequent conference speaker and two-time winner of the ASI indexing award.

You have lots to gain. If you win, you can feel more confident in your skills. And if you don’t win, you are very likely to get expert feedback to help you become an even better indexer.
