AMBA Appreciation Awards

Volunteers are the engine that enables the Australian Multiple Birth Association to successfully work towards achieving our vision! 

AMBA and its affiliated clubs are successful due to the dedication of our fantastic volunteer team who contribute their time and skills to assist multiple birth families at local, state and national levels. AMBA celebrates the contribution our volunteers make and the AMBA Appreciation Awards are an acknowledgement of outstanding contribution and achievement within the multiple birth community.

 

THE AMBA Appreciation Awards

The AMBA Appreciation Awards program has been established to acknowledge AMBA members’ valued contributions; introduce dedicated, creative and innovative individuals and clubs to their peers on a national level; promote teamwork; recognise activities that increase the profile of AMBA within local and national communities and promote national affiliation.

In 2018 AMBA has launched a new set of values to define what is of key importance to our organisation. These values have been incorporated into the criteria for the AMBA Appreciation Awards so that volunteers displaying these highly regarded traits can be recognised for their contributions to the Australian Multiple Birth Association. Our values represent how we behave and relate to one another. They are our mindset and vibe. These values drive our conduct and guide how we treat each other.

At AMBA, we:

RESPECT unity

We value team over individual; how we get things done is as important as what we achieve. We share our diverse strengths, talents and resources to achieve goals together. Our success is driven by building relationships, breaking down barriers and connecting across clubs, states and communities.

IMAGINE possibilities

We have the courage and curiosity to challenge, innovate and take on new opportunities. Adopting a growth mindset and positively working through change means success for our volunteers, our organisation and our families.

HONOUR integrity

We act with integrity and take ownership for the quality of our individual work, but also take pride in what we deliver as a team. Our focus is on a successful outcome for all. When things don’t go as planned we proactively use it as an opportunity to learn and shift direction.

INSPIRE action

We value passion, commitment and enthusiasm for our cause. We believe that seeking and giving feedback are essential for us to learn; we want to inspire each other to achieve great things. Transparency and being candid will enable us to grow as individuals and become a stronger organisation.

SERVE families

We prioritise support for multiple birth families over any other activity. We work to provide a peer network for families of multiples to find relevant information and support. We are dedicated to building awareness of the unique needs of multiple birth families and advocating for their rights.
