Research suggests that our community wants to see the AMBA Appreciation Awards recognise people changing lives and impacting families for the better, as well as those who enable our organisation to strengthen its capacity to deliver on its mission. Consideration should be given to the appropriateness of nominations, given these are annual and prestigious awards that recognise contribution at the highest levels of our organisation. Good work and positive contributions are observed often within our organisation, and part of maintaining a positive and cohesive board or committee is to ensure that feedback is provided regularly to recognise those contributions. There are many scenarios where proper recognition to individuals should come from a member-club to its own volunteers.
In choosing the recipients of the AMBA Appreciation Awards (AAA), regard is given to the nominee's achievements in the year immediately prior to receiving the award, as well as their past achievements and potential ongoing contribution to the multiple birth community.
The selection and eligibility criteria are mostly unique for each award, however, there are some common conditions for all award categories:
The local award recognises and celebrates extraordinary individuals and member-clubs that have embodied one or more of the AMBA values and have demonstrated innovative achievement in program or service delivery, or delivered a benefit outside the defined role or expectation of their committee position or the community expectations of the club. This club or individual will have demonstrated the value in an exceptional manner, within their local area or state.
The AMBA Appreciation Award nominations are open now and close on 31 August 2022.
You can nominate an outstanding contributoe by completing the nomination form online.
