The Service Award, established in 2005, honors members who have advanced the goals of the Society to promote research and education in meteoritics and planetary science in ways other than by conducting scientific research. Examples of activities that could be honored include, but are not limited to, education and public outreach, service to the Society and the broader scientific community, and acquisition, classification and curation of new samples for research. Winners will be granted lifetime membership in the Meteoritical Society.

Members are strongly urged to nominate candidates for the Service Award. Yearly nomination deadline: February 15. The procedures for nominations may be found in the Membership Committee bylaws and rules.
