To all members. Last year at our National Convention, I had the distinct pleasure in designing, producing, then presenting the very first “BHA Medal” to Mike Donnelly.

For all of us who were at the Sydney Convention, we know what the “BHA Medal” represents. But as a short explanation for the “newbies” to our organisation, the “BHA Medal” is awarded to a member who has generally worked tirelessly for his chorus, his quartet, or done anything in your opinion deserves to be nominated for the “BHA Medal”

Without these types of energetic and hard working individuals in our midst, I know it is impossible to have reached the standard we have in this country. To ensure that “These people” continue to get recognised and rewarded for their services, we have to have your nomination/selections information sent through the appropriate form. Please remember it is SOOOOO important to write down the reasons/s for your suggestion. Your explanation/s are VITAL to your nominee being selected, as the committee that discusses the merits of ALL nominees, must have that information. Remember there is only one “BHA Medal” given to a deserving member per year, so gentlemen, let's make it count. Please do not hold back on your superlatives about your choice when the form is sent out prior to our next National Convention in Adelaide. I would hope, about 4 weeks prior.

This letter is just a reminder about how important your vote/nomination will be when the time comes around about August this year. As an aside, thank you to all of you who have contacted me about this medal and the reasons for it. It’s encouraging to know that so many are on board with the concept.


Sing-cerely Derek.
