Nominations Life Membership and Distinguished Service Awards
The Honours committee is seeking nominations of members who may qualify for Life Membership of MLSC or a Distinguish Service Award.
Each nomination should set out clearly in very short form the service performed by the proposed person for the award and extraordinary aspect of that service. The Honours Committee if required will seek further information. Each nomination is to be in writing and proposed and seconded by a member of MLSC.
Please understand that nomination will not automatically lead to a successful application as the nominated person must meet the relevant criteria and be approved by the Board of MLSC and in the case of a Life Member the nomination is to be further approved by the Life Members and the AGM.
Any nomination should be received by the Secretary by 7th March 2019, so that it can be properly considered.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with you completed nominations or they can also be dropped the the office during opening hours.
The criteria of these awards as per the MLSC Constitution
are as follows:
Distinguished Service Award
A Distinguished Service Award may be awarded to a member who has given extraordinary service to the Manly LSC or by virtue of a Meritorious rescue performed by the member/s.

The criterion for Life Membership is the performance of extraordinary and exceptional service as well as:
– A minimum of 20 years membership of a surf lifesaving club, the majority of which has been served with MLSC.
– A minimum of eight years service as an active patrolling member in good standing at any club.
– A minimum of fifteen years service to MLSC as an Officer of the Club or in rare cases by representing MLSC and providing distinguished services to lifesaving in any other capacity for that period.”
