Selection Criteria and Judging Panel
Download sample citation - Inspirational Member Award
All nominations must be supported by a citation which demonstrates how the activities of the individual relate to the purpose of the award.
An excellent citation could include:
- Details of how the nominee was personally responsible for driving forward a new idea/approach
- Details of how the nominee engaged others in their activities
- Details of the impact on the community and committee of their activities
- Details of how the nominee has impacted the future of the network
Citations should not include references to academic achievements or paid work, voluntary work for other organisations or to length of service. While we value the roles that members hold through other organisations and within their communities, this award is established to recognise the volunteering contribution made to the RSC. As such, we do not/will not consider the contributions of roles such as school governor etc. as part of the judging process.
The Member Networks Committee will convene a panel to make recommendations to the Committee. If a conflict of interest arises then the panel member will be replaced. The final decision will sit with the Chair of the panel.
