|The BHA National Council is pleased to call for nominations for the 2018 BHA Medal.
First awarded in 2017 to Mike Donnelly, the BHA Medal recognises an individual’s exemplary contribution to the advancement of barbershop in Australia. It will be awarded to a current BHA member in good standing who has consistently “put in” for barbershop.
The award is made for sustained outstanding leadership, innovation, influence or initiative development, which has resulted in an exemplary, transparent and publicly evident advancement of BHA. They will be recognised nationally for their sustained contribution for the association, their club, their community, or behind the scenes. In limited circumstances, individuals may also be considered for nomination whilst no longer an active member due to retirement on the basis of incapacity.Nomination for the BHA Medal must be made in writing and may come from individual BHA members, Regional or Club Committees.
Each nomination will be assessed by a subcommittee of independent (i.e. not involved in nominating or being a nominee) BHA members appointed by the BHA Council. If awarded (at the absolute discretion of the BHA Council), the BHA Medal will be presented at the next available national convention.
Nomination Criteria to be Addressed
(There could be many and varied reasons that set the nominee as an exemplar to the barbershop community. Below are few ideas, but not an exhaustive list)
The nomination must include the rationale for nomination, details of nomination criteria and supporting evidence, certification of the BHA members supporting the nomination and contact details for follow up with regards to the nomination.
Life membership still remains BHA’s highest honour and award.
Nominations must be received by the BHA Executive Officer, Jeannie Hattendorf firstname.lastname@example.org, by close of business on Tuesday 28th August 2018.

Yours in harmony
