The Society’s awards — the Massey
Medal, Gold Medal, Camsell
Medal, Sir Christopher Ondaatje Medal for Exploration and the 3M Environmental Innovation Award — are usually presented at the Annual Dinner.
Each year, a special guest speaker is invited to the Annual Dinner. The Annual Dinner is
open to all Society members.
This year is special, because we will be giving out the Sir Christopher Ondaatje Medal for Exploration for the first time.
