Local Service Awards
The Local Service Award is to recognize the outstanding contributions of members who have provided leadership and service at the Local level of the NSTU. The award is open to any active member, or any member who has retired within the last two years. To recommend someone for the award, a member must simply put a letter forward to the local President which indicates the reason why the member should be considered (should not be more than 150 words.) All such letters will be considered by the local executive, with selected nominees having their names sent to the Provincial Executive for final consideration. If chosen by PE, the local nominees will be invited to a special luncheon at annual council where they will receive their award.
For more information on the process, members should refer to the NSTU operational procedures, or contact their local president.
