Why is recognition important?
We all try to do good everyday. Acknowledging and sharing exceptional actions and behaviours and great community outcomes promotes the type of values and culture we want to foster. Importantly it lets those people who are prepared to make an extra effort to go above and beyond expectations know that we appreciate them and the difference they make within our lives, our members lives and our communities.
Each winner will receive his or her choice of:
One night’s accommodation and dinner for two in their closest capital city valued at $750
OR a $750 gift certificate.
Nominees will have:
- Made a significant contribution that has improved the lives of members and / or the local community
- Be recognised as a role model by their peers, members and/ or community
You can nominate yourself or someone else.
