Bancroft Award Nomination Form
Deadline for Nominations is January 15
The Bancroft Award has been established to recognize outstanding service at the branch level. A maximum of three awards may be presented each year and awards are open to any active member of the Association. Each recipient shall receive a ring and a plaque. The President of the Association shall announce the winner(s) at least two weeks prior to Convention and, in a non-Convention year, at a convenient time following the Executive meeting at which the award recipient is approved. During a non-Convention year, award recipients will be presented with their awards at an occasion to be determined by the Provincial President. Award winners from both the non-Convention and Convention years will be invited to the Biennial General Meeting where their awards will be recognized and presented.
