In keeping with SMA’s mission, tradition, and Jerry Hunt’s legacy, the 2020 James G.

This honor is awarded based upon; (1) Magnitude/Impact of the Nominee’s contributions to SMA; (2) Variety of Contributions to SMA, and (3) Length of Service to SMA.

The Hunt Award recognizes an individual who has consistently helped SMA reach its goals and mission over a period of years. The individual recognized must have made important, sustained, and current contributions to SMA, including, but not limited to, elected office (e.g., board member, treasurer, secretary), appointed position (e.g., track chairs, committees) and volunteer service (e.g., paper reviewers, session chairs and discussants) as well as extraordinary contributions to SMA (e.g., local arrangements, financial contributions). The winner of this award should be either active or recently active in the Southern Management Association. The award winner will be recognized at the 2020 SMA meeting. A notice with the winner's photo and contributions will be featured on the SMA webpage.
