The GYA is frequently invited by partner organisations and further external sources to nominate candidates to serve on international committees, work together with other experts on a topical paper, participate in events or a working group, or participate in international meetings. The role of this committee is to ensure that the process of nominating GYA representatives is fair and transparent, even if places are limited.
The GYA also actively seeks to nominate members and alumni for important prizes and other interesting opportunities.
Committee members will also help with mapping relevant opportunities and actively seeking out members and alumni who may be nominated for them.
Nominations happen on a rolling basis, whenever opportunities come in.
Decisions on nominations are made by the committee, and then shared GYA-internally with the EC and the membership in the monthly GYA newsletter.
Nominations with a very short turnaround time (less than 10 days) are selected by the EC or the thematically-relevant working group.
For each nomination, two calls will be issued to the membership simultaneously: 1) call for applications; and 2) call for 2-3 expert reviewers for this particular nomination, who support the Nom+OppC core members with specialist perspectives relevant to the call.
