In accordance with Clause 25 of the Hockey NT By Laws nominations are now sought for the awarding of Service Excellence Awards for 2017, the relevant section is extracted and included below for your reference:



(a)             The Association shall recognise outstanding service to the Association by an Individual Member who shall be eligible to receive the service excellence award provided that the nominated member has given at least ten (10)years outstanding service to hockey.

(b)             Candidates for the award may be nominated by any Member.

(c)             The criteria is not based on length of service alone but shall also include the scope of the nominees contribution beyond the norm of ordinary duties of office.

(d)             Nominations shall be submitted in writing to the Executive Officer by 31 August each year on the approved nomination form and shall include hockey specific qualifications.

(e)             The Board will determine from the nominations the recipients of the service excellence award.  No more than five service excellence awards will be awarded in any one year.

(f)              The service excellence award will be presented to the recipient at an Annual General Meeting.

Please find attached a copy of a Nomination Form to be utilised in the submission of information for a nominee.


I draw your attention to the closing date for nominations being Thursday 31st August 2017 and the fact that any member can nominate a recipient thus seek your assistance in distributing this opportunity throughout your networks.  Whilst there is an annual limit on the number of Awards issued I encourage submission of nominees for a databank to be established as clearly there are many deserving people within the hockey community however all are unable to be recognised on this one occasion.


Should you have any queries in relation to the Awards or process please do not hesitate to contact Ian at Hockey NT accordingly.
