AIS Awards System


Having just returned from the AIS Fall Board Meeting, I thought it a good
idea to pass on what happened re the AIS Award System, which many on this
list have discussed and put forth ideas for changing.   Only one change was
made to be effectively immediately.  In 1997 there will be at least 3 irises
for each type of iris eligible for the Dykes Memorial Medal.  In the case of
TBs which have had only one because the TB has won the medal each year since
the current system was adopted, the Wister Medal winner in 1996 (THORNBIRD)
and the first two runners up for the Wister Medal in 1996 (CONJURATION and
SUPREME SULTAN) will be eligible.  Then in the future, whatever type of iris
wins the Dykes will be replaced the following year by the medal winner for
that type plus the lst runner up....so that there will always be at least 3
of each type eligible for the Dykes.  

A new committee was approved for considering and proposing changes to the
awards system....there will be 5 members appointed by the Pres. of AIS from 5
different geographical areas of the U.S.  When the committee is named, I will
let you know who is on it, and then you can write to the member for your
geographical area and pass on your concerns and ideas.   Clarence Mahan in VA

P.S. Re the election of officers and directors, the new directors on the AIS
board are Mike Lowe, Mike Moller, and Riley Probst.  Kathy Guest was elected
Recording Secretary.  All the other officers remained the same except 2d Vice
President....Terry Aitken was elected to that Office.
