In 2017, the Leeds DA Committee introduced The Chairman’s Award for Lifetime Achievement. The intention of this award is to honour and thank club members who have given up their time for a sustained period to serve our DA.
The recipient(s) of the award will be chosen each year by the Chairman and approved by the committee. The recipient(s) will receive a beautiful silver salver to keep for a year. Their names will be engraved on the rear and they will also be awarded a commemorative clock to keep as a symbolic thank you for their time.
The award can be awarded to an individual or a couple. It can only be awarded to the same person once. The award will be presented annually at the AGM with the caveat that it should not be devalued by being awarded just for the sake of it. In other words, if there is no outstanding candidate it should not be awarded.
