George W. Angers Memorial Award
In memory of this AAMS co-founder who, for almost four decades, rendered outstanding and unselfish service to the hobby of aerophilately and to the American Air Mail Society, this award is presented to a person who has rendered outstanding service to aerophilately. The award is not restricted to members of the American Air Mail Society.
Criteria and Eligibility
The George W. Angers Memorial Award is for outstanding service to aerophilately. Outstanding service is characterized by a distinguished and prominent role in activities serving to increase participation in and the recognition, popularity, prominence and importance of aerophilately, evidenced by promotion, publicity, contributions, leadership, exhibiting, programs, seminars, publications or other significant aerophilatelic activities pursuant to the research, study, documentation and preservation of aerophilately.
Service in organized aerophilately, nationally and internationally, is included in the criteria for this award. However, service to the American Air Mail Society is the criteria for the Walter J. Conrath Memorial Award and should not be a major consideration for the George W. Angers Memorial Award.
The award is international in scope and is not restricted to members of AAMS.
This award was discontinued in 2012 as its criteria essentially duplicate those of the Aerophilatelic Hall of Fame.
