Arthur (Jumbo) Godfrey Award Rules
The purpose of this award is to remember one of New Zealand's most well known radio amateurs, who fully supported NZART Inc and branch level activities, in the belief that strong branches meant a strong national organisation.
As there was/is a gap in this area of recognising branch level activities at a national level, this award has be instituted to not so much reward those who work at this most important level but to acknowledge to the rest of the amateur service the tireless work put in at the grass roots of amateur radio.
The Award is to be made to the radio amateur or non-transmitting branch member who in the opinion of the nominator(s) has given outstanding service to Amateur Radio at a branch level over a period of time that has not been recognized anywhere else.
- Nominees must be active in branch level activities and in these to have shown extraordinary service to their fellow branch members. Points of service rendered need to be presented to ensure that the nominee meets the purpose and vision of the award as outlined in the introduction,
- The award is for the years prior to the award presentation. e.g. if award year is 2008, the period of time to be considered are those prior to 31 December 2007,
- There are no limits on the number of nominees, however up to a maximum of three recipients can be awarded in any one year,
- The nominee must be a current member of NZART,
- The nominee must be a current member of the nominating branch, and
- The nominee should be unaware of the nominations.
- Nominations to be made to the General Secretary of NZART (at current address) to reach the office by 1 April following the year(s) under review,
- Nominations must be made through the Secretary of a Branch of NZART, and
- Bullet points of "service rendered" must be tabulated and certified as correct by the Branch Chairman (except that two other officers would be accepted if the circumstances warrant) and these must refer to the period under review. Through these, the reason why the nominee should be considered must be clearly evident. I in my capacity of General Secretary I will recommend those that meet the criteria of the Award to NZART Council for confirmation immediately prior to the Annual General Meeting. It is possible that in some years no award would be made even though nominations/recommendations were received.
Any branch that feels that they have members who would fit this criteria, please send their nominations to NZART General Secretary before 1 December.
