The American Name Society Executive Council recently decided to hold two “Name of the Year” events leading up to the selection of the 2023 Name of the Year, both separate from the annual meeting. The first will be a virtual workshop, scheduled for 9:00 am Pacific on 14 October 2023. The workshop event will focus on clarifying nomination and voting procedures. The second event will be the Name of the Year Discussion, scheduled for 12:00 pm (Noon) Pacific on 4 January 2024. The discussion event will also be a virtual meeting and will offer members the opportunity to discuss the nominees and vote on the Name of the Year.
Updates, including sign-up links for both events, will be posted to our website and shared via email in the coming weeks.
