In 2011, ASB created the status of Fellow to recognize professional achievement and service of the top members of the Society and to encourage continued service to the Society in a leadership role.
To be considered for Fellow status, an applicant must have been a member of the Society in good standing for at least ten years, has a consistent and significant record of service to and participation in ASB, is expected to remain active in ASB, and has made significant research and scientific contributions in biomechanics. The applicant must have strong support from two nominating ASB Fellows (preferred) or one Fellow and a senior research scientist (with prior approval by the Past-President).
Prospective Fellows must be nominated by a Fellow. A nomination portfolio should be sent to the ASB Past-President after the conclusion of the Annual Meeting and before November 15th. The election process depends on a majority vote by the Fellows Nomination Review Committee and a subsequent 2/3 votes by the ASB Executive Board.
