An award for outstanding service by a member to the AIG
The AIG Service Award recognises members for meritorious service to the AIG. Any member may nominate another member for the award. The award is bestowed occasionally, with a maximum of one per year.
- Nominees must be a current member (any membership category) of the AIG.
- Nominees will be proposed by any AIG member but otherwise the names of nominees will remain confidential.
- The judgement of outstanding service will be left to the discretion of Council after consideration of a recommendation from the Service Award Committee.
- Service should have been through a Permanent Committee or Council for a sustained period or periods amounting to 10 years or more
- The service must have resulted in an outstanding contribution to the AIG’s objectives.
- Outstanding in this context means a measurable improvement in the reputation or profile of AIG and/or the geoscience profession.
- The Council decision to make the award must be unanimous.
- Such a decision may be made out of session but must be confirmed at the following Council meeting.
- Entries will be made on an award form, which will be sent to the Councillor selected to head the Service Award committee. The committee will consist of a minimum of three members consisting of one councillor and two AIG members, preferably from different states as it is envisaged that the person receiving the award will be well known nationally.
- The award will consist of a certificate and a medal. It should be presented at an AIG sponsored or related function at which the nominee would normally attend.
- The award will feature in the AIG News and on the AIG website.
