The Rover Service Award is presented to recognise an individuals outstanding contribution to Rovering over a sustained period.
NATIONAL CRITERIA FOR THE ROVER SERVICE AWARD:
The minimum length of service necessary to fulfill the qualifying period should be 5 years for Rovers and 10 years for Uniformed Members / Supporters.
The length of service necessary to fulfill the qualifying period should take into consideration any involvement the individual may have had in other Branches.
As this is specifically a Rover Award, only service to the Rover Section can be considered. Service to other Sections will not assist a nomination.
Nominations must remain confidential and must not be discussed, either with the nominee or as part of the agenda at an open meeting.
Where a Rover continues to provide outstanding service to the Section in an advisory position, the period of service whilst a Rover will count towards their eligibility.
Some Branch Rover Councils have chosen to impose additional requirements such as:
Nominee should be carrying out the responsibilities of his/her current appointment in the Rover Section to the highest standard.
Nominee should promote team work and a positive attitude among fellow Rovers.
Nominee should be a Rovering enthusiast and give a lead to other members of the Rover Section.
