2019 Life Member Nominations

The Call For Nominations For NZAF Honorary Life Memberships Are Now Open

The New Zealand AIDS Foundation (NZAF) Trust Board invites nominations for Honorary Life Membership. The award of Honorary Life Membership is recognition by NZAF of an outstanding contribution to NZAF's mission, and is the highest award that the NZAF bestows.

This honour may be bestowed on a person by the NZAF Trust Board at any appropriate time, and is not linked necessarily with that person's retirement from a position either as a carer, Board member, paid staff, volunteer or community member.

NZAF Life Members are nominated by NZAF members and selected by the Trust Board. A review panel of current Life Members will assist in the recommendation process. After consideration of the candidates it is anticipated that any new Life Memberships will be awarded later this year.

An outstanding contribution to NZAF's mission is one that:

  1. Results in the NZAF mission being substantially and positively enhanced by that contribution, and
  2. Occurs over a significant period of time, and
  3. Required substantial and commendable personal input, and
  4. Involved service in particularly challenging environments, and
  5. Can be clearly documented and corroborated.

Submissions close 7 June 2019. Please ensure the nomination clearly describes how the nominee meets the criteria. The nomination should be returned to:

Virginia Cattell, NZAF Trust Board Secretary,
PO Box 6663, Wellesley Street, Auckland 1141. virginia.cattell@nzaf.org.nz
