[802SEC] Hans Karlsson Award Nominations

Hi Everyone,


This year I am serving on the Hans Karlsson Award committee.  John Walz ( is chair, and wanted to know if the LMSC had any nominations for the award this year.  I asked Paul, and he delegated the responsibility of canvassing the EC on the matter to me.  Below please find a description of the award qualifications.  If you know of someone you would like to nominate, please let me know as soon as possible.  If you have any questions let me know as well.


Thanks and Regards,
