Club Awards (by season)

Surf CV

We (the Paekakariki Surf Lifeguards) have Service and Life Membership awards to officially recognise our members for their hard work and dedication to Paekakariki and Surf Life Saving in New Zealand. We have created a 'surf CV' document that helps you calculate whether or not you are eligible for an award.

The Surf CV will be used by the Club's Awards committee to determine nominations for Club, Region and National Service awards.  The spreadsheet shows the points required to be eligible to be considered for any of the awards and sets out how the spreadsheet should be completed.  Members should note in particular that where they hold a National or Region award they are deemed to hold the equivalent Club award and this should be included in the club section of the spreadsheet.

Any member who considers that they may be eligible should forward their completed Surf CV to Sandra Bednarek at sandrab@orcon.net.nz for consideration by the Awards committee.  Region nominations close on 31 March so anyone who may be eligible for a Regional award should forward their CV by 16 March.  Anyone who wishes to be considered for a National or Club award should forward their CV by 30 April.  Members should also note that the Management Committee has determined that any member with a regional Service award will be exempt from being rostered on patrols.

If you would like to be considered for a service award, this is the first step.
