Michigan SAF Awards & Officers Over the Years

Each year at the Fall Conference, the Michigan SAF takes the opportunity to recognize those individuals who have contributed to the profession of forestry and the state society.  The opportunity is always open to nominate a fellow Michigan SAF member for Forester of the Year, Young Forester of the Year, and Retired Forester of the Year.  

1. Forester of the Year; in recognition of service to professional forestry. Nominations must include the signatures of ten SAF members in good standing. Please include a brief biographical sketch.

2. Young Forester of the Year; in recognition of service to professional forestry and the state society by an individual age 35 or under. Please include a brief statement on why the candidate has been nominated.

3. Retired Forester of the Year; in recognition of service to professional forestry and the state society since retirement. Please include a brief statement on why the candidate has been nominated.

4. SAF Fellow; election and recognition of an SAF member that has provided exemplary service to the Society and to the profession of forestry. Instructions for Fellow nominations can be found on the national website by going through the "Members Only" section.

To nominate an individual, contact the MSAF Awards Chair (who's who page). There are many individuals deserving recognition for their contributions to the profession and the society.

In addition, each year the Michigan SAF has an opportunity to participate in National Awards and Recognitions. We can elect a Fellow and nominate foresters for a slate of awards.

The second table contains currently known history of who served in various service capacities. Any additions and/or corrections are welcome!
