OSA Treasurer's Award

OSA Treasurer's Award

Established in 2016 to honor the contributions of OSA staff members to the organization. 


About the OSA Treasurer's Award

OSA staff members impact not only internal operations but also ensure that a stable and robust infrastructure exists to expand and disseminate the work of the optics and photonics community. OSA has a long history awarding excellence and unique/extraordinary contributions from its members, but, until 2016, did not have a staff recognition.

The position of OSA Treasurer has a unique opportunity to interact with staff in all departments across the organization and ensures sound and effective organizational operations so it was fitting that the staff award be named for that role.
