POMS Fellows

2015: Call for Nominations

Designation as a POMS Fellow is the most prestigious honor awarded by the Production and Operations Management Society, and is given for life. It is intended to recognize POMS members who have made exceptional intellectual contributions to our profession and Society through their research and teaching. Although loyal service to the Society, in administrative, elected, or editorial assignments, is not by itself a sufficient qualification for this award, it can strengthen the case of a member who has also become a thought-leader in our field. To be eligible a candidate must have demonstrated commitment to furthering the objectives of POMS (as evidenced by such indicators as membership in the Society, and active participation in POMS Colleges and meetings).
