The Nominating Committee for Honorary Members invites Full and Associate members of the Society of Toxicology (SOT) to nominate a candidate for Honorary Membership. Since 1962, the Society has recognized nonmembers who embody outstanding and sustained achievements in the field of toxicology and/or allied disciplines with Honorary Membership. Candidates are nominated by two Full or Associate members of the Society. Nominations should be accompanied by seconding letters and information regarding career achievements in toxicology. Election of Honorary members shall be by a two-thirds majority vote of the SOT Council.

Per the SOT Bylaws, not more than two Honorary members shall be elected during any one term of Council. To nominate an Honorary Member, visit the Awards page of the SOT website, click nominate, and follow all submission instructions. It is a benefit of SOT membership to encourage the recognition of an outstanding individual who is not a member of the Society with a nomination for Honorary Membership!
The 2018-2019 Nominating Committee for Honorary Members includes Chair, Patti Ganey, John Morris, and Ronald Hines.
