EGOS Honorary Members

EGOS Honorary Membership was created in 1998 to honour and thank scholars who have made pioneering and lasting contributions both to the advancement of knowledge in the social sciences dealing with organization, organized and organizing, and to EGOS as an association.

Suggestions for the nomination of a new Honorary Member can be sent by EGOS members to the EGOS Executive Secreariat (secretariat@egosnet.eu) by December 31 of each year.
The EGOS Board makes the final choice according to the two criteria mentioned above. It also takes into account the European and international character of the association.

The new EGOS Honorary Member is welcomed with a laudatio during the annual EGOS Colloquium each year.
