Am I the only one totally demotivated by our Awards process? I tried raising some suggestions with Richard Butler Chair of the Awards Board but he wont deal with any nominations unless they are made via a CC.
He would not even raise them with the CC.
So why are only "management initated and approved" candidates getting higher awards? In our county this equates with District and County service only (we have not had a Group based person get a higher award in the two years our CC has been in post).
Is it not time for a system where any Group can nominate good candidates?
