Citation Award Rules
The Citation Award is very much the 'members award' - its main function is to provide a means whereby a branch can obtain formal recognition for a long-serving member who is held in particularly high regard because of a long period of outstanding service to the Institute.
The award is above all a measure of the esteem in which the nominee is held by his colleagues and made in the true spirit of Institute fellowship.
- The award is not normally given to members of less than 20 years' standing, during which time the nominee should have been a regular supporter of Institute activities, often having undertaken a long period of service on a branch or other committee.
- The award is not available to those who have held senior honorary office - President, Deputy President, Vice President, Chairman of Council, or Chairman of a Council Committee - nor to those who have been elected to Honorary Fellowship.
- All awards are administered by the Policy Committee and nominations should be submitted to the Secretary by 31 December for consideration the following year.
- The nomination must be made in confidence without the knowledge of the individual concerned and it is therefore recommended that the Secretary be approached for advice before a written submission is made.
