In 2017 CALE created two awards: a Best Paper Award and a Lifetime Achievement Award. Nominations will be sought for these awards each year, commencing in the spring, and the awards will normally be announced at the annual meeting of members in the fall. In 2018 the selection committee determined that neither award would be made that year.
For 2019 the selection committee is Pooja Parmer, Darrel Pink and Stephen Pitel. CALE expects to call for nominations in early May 2019.
