Category: Outstanding Community Service (Members)
This award is granted to a member to recognise outstanding voluntary service within the wider community. While the service performed does not necessarily have to be of a technology related nature, his or her professional status/occupation as a technician or technologist is still publicly recognised, thereby bringing added admiration and respect to the profession.
Recognition of past service or outstanding accomplishments by an organisation, or in the wider community in general, would be a major factor in assessing the nominee’s contribution. Length of volunteer service in itself would not qualify for the award.
