NOMINATIONS

In all categories, the person nominated must be a “volunteer” – defined as someone who does not derive a significant source of income from the role that they fulfil. They may receive honorarium or expenses in completing the role that they are nominated for.

 

Many volunteers could qualify in more than one category. However, the nomination of a person may be for only one category each year. It is acknowledged that many volunteers’ efforts are the result of several years of commitment and involvement, so a nomination may recognise the volunteer’s total contribution to the New Zealand multiples community, over the last few years.

 

Membership status of those nominees for awards which specify the recipient must be a financial member of a Multiples NZ affiliated club or Multiples NZ will be confirmed with the relevant clubs. Nominees for the Community Dedication award do not have to be financial members of a club.
