Suggestion to rename "EMCA Lifetime Achievement Award" to "Harold Garfinkel Lifetime Achievement Award"

Dear EMCA Section Members,

I hope you've had a splendid start into 2015.

Today, I contact you with a short query or suggestion that has come from various members and people interested in EMCA.

Our Section currently has four awards, one of which is the "EMCA Lifetime Achievement Award". We wondered what members would think of a renaming of this award to "Harold Garfinkel Lifetime Achievement Award"?

Please do contact the Section Co-Chairs Robert Dingwall and/or Mardi Kidwell or me with your thoughts on this suggestion.

Kind regards
