Roll up

30 August 2005

It's that time of year again when Standards New Zealand (SNZ) calls for your help in recognising the outstanding contributions that individual committee members have made, with the launch of the 2005 Meritorious Service Awards.

This is the sixth time SNZ has held the awards, which will be presented to committee members at the Annual Fora in November. Awards will be presented to committee members whose exceptional hard work and dedication has contributed to high quality Standards that assist New Zealanders in their work and lives.

As in the past, committee members will be recognised for a variety of reasons, including their expertise, length of service or their role in representing New Zealand on the international scene. The 2005 awards are an opportunity to again formally recognise these contributions on which the development of Standards depends.

Following nomination by peers, a panel will consider the nominations according to the judging specifications and the information provided. Therefore, SNZ asks that when nominating, you complete the nomination form with as much relevant information as possible.

At this year’s Annual Fora, we hope to widen the audience to encourage the involvement of other partners who also contribute towards, and benefit from, Standards. These partners include nominating organisations, funders, and government regulators who, along with committee members, all make extremely valuable contributions to the Standards development process.

Along with the awards ceremony, the Annual Fora will open opportunities for discussion around the Standards “Value Chain”, the importance of partnership, and the future direction for SNZ.

We hope you will join us at the Annual Fora in Christchurch, Auckland or Wellington on November 23, 24, and 25 respectively.

To nominate a committee member for an award please contact Amanda Hunt on 04 398 3951 or email for an official nomination form. All nominations must be received by Friday 9 September. Winners will be announced at the Annual Fora, on this website after the Fora and in the December/January edition of Standards magazine.
