Distinguished Service Award
This Award recognises volunteers whose contributions have made a real difference to TOPRA and the profession.
TOPRA has a Distinguished Service Award programme for individuals who have ‘gone the extra mile’ on a piece of volunteering work. There is no limit to the number of such awards given each year, nor to the number of awards a single person can achieve, but they can only get one in each year.
Sometimes, however, an exceptional outcome is not the result of a single person’s hard work, but due to the excellent work of the team that delivers, be it an ad-hoc working party, a permanent working party or a permanent standing committee.
TOPRA has therefore decided to acknowledge the work done by these teams by a new award the ‘TOP TEAM’ award.
The purpose of the award is to have a fun way to acknowledge excellent volunteer contribution, publicity for the behind-the-scenes hard work and a practical gift to the team as a thank-you.
