The Committee has decided to reward those members who have maintained their membership continuously for 10 years. To be eligible, members must be financial at the award date (AGM) and have a minimum of 10 years continuous membership. Records indicate that there will be around 70 eligible members at this year’s AGM.
Members who have allowed their membership to lapse for more than 3 months have had their effective join date re-set at the date they re-joined and therefore will not be eligible. The Committee has been fairly generous in applying continuity for memberships before we had computerised records. Certainly no one has been disadvantaged in the early years.
Members who were a part of a family membership as children have had that time included in their membership if they are now adult members of the association.
