Applications for this category must be in the hands of the Membership Committee for not less than two months before the annual meeting.
A candidate for this category must be a citizen of the U.S. or Canada (unless waived by the Council), and shall have achieved distinction in the field or shall have made a meritorious contribution to knowledge pertaining to cardiopulmonary perfusion.
