Dear ABC Members,

We are extending the deadline for nominations for the Outstanding Researcher Award in Memory of Kitty O. Locker. The Award recognizes and encourages excellence in business communication research.  The recipient is an ABC member whose research has made an outstanding contribution to the business communication discipline. The award recipient receives a plaque and a monetary award, sponsored by McGraw-Hill Education. 

Candidates for this award should demonstrate the following criteria:

  1. Overall contribution of the researcher’s cumulative publications in refereed journals and scholarly books.
  2. Significance of the research to the field.
  3. Overall quality of the research.
  4. Heuristic value of the research.

Nominations consist of a nomination letter describing the scholar’s research and showing how the research meets the award criteria and the nominee’s detailed curriculum vitae. Candidates may self-nominate. Award recipients will be de facto members of the Research Committee for three years and will be expected to organize a research-related event at the ABC annual conference.
