It is less than two months for all SAA members to get their nomination into the SAA Award’s Committee.
The SAA is made up of volunteers who put in an incredible amount of work in running clubs, courses, regions and the SAA nationally. There are some people who always seem to be putting in that extra effort over and above everyone else or going far beyond the minimum requirements of their roles. Now is your chance to acknowledge the efforts of these people.
You can say “a big thank you” to those hard-working Regional Instructors, Club Officers, and Instructors, divers, clubs and regions that you’ve been able to rely on throughout the year by nominating them for an SAA Award.
Awards available include: Sub-Aqua Certificates. – Gold, silver and bronze, Golden Club, Golden Region, George Arnold Trophy for Conservation, The Kenn Tyler Trophy for Instruction, SAA Medallion for Life saving, The Zanelli Charlton Award, Certificate of Appreciation. In addition the SAA Awards recognise achievements in Archaeology and Conservation.
