At the recent Rotary Zone Institute held in Canberra in 2013 it was decided that an “Australian Honours Advisory Panel” be established under the aegis of the Rotary Institute to “Encourage the nomination of worthy Australian men and women for the Order of Australia recognition”.
The Panel will alert, facilitate and advise on the ready availability of Order of Australia Honours information – how to access nomination criteria and forms and tips for their effective submission to the Honours Secretariat, and the importance of selecting the most effective referees, in order to assist in maximising potential success - and the level of award.
Panel members are: PDG Len Goodman AO (Convenor); PDG Bob Aiken AM and Noel Trevaskis OAM (RI. Director for 2016-18). District Governors are being asked to nominate a Correspondence Liaison person - and to include reference to the Panel in their Directories.
The Panel has set up a new “Australian Honours” web page with the support of RDU. Further information regarding Australian Honours are available on the Honours Secretariat official “It’s An Honour” web site.
The aim of the Advisory Panel is to encourage Rotarians to recognise and nominate eligible Rotarians – and others in their communities.
