CFA Honours and Awards is pleased to announce the new CFA Honours and Awards Nominator’s Guide. This guide complements the CFA Honours and Awards Manual.

Many CFA members are familiar with the system of CFA Service Awards which are presented to members at brigade or group functions. However, there are several alternative awards that have been created to acknowledge those people who have done something that exceeds what could be considered as meeting the usual expectations of a member, going above and beyond.

The purpose of this guide is to provide information and guidance about how to determine the most appropriate award, the importance of aligning the written nomination of a person to the criteria for the selected award, and finally, some guidance around the content of your nomination, so that the nominee has the best opportunity to be considered for special recognition.

Printed copies of the Nominator’s Guide will be distributed within the coming weeks to all group secretaries and district offices.  Additional printed copies will be available shortly and can be ordered by contacting CFA Honours and Awards, via phone: 1800 232 636 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

For information about the nomination process and how to submit a nomination, please refer to the CFA Honours and Awards Manual which is available online through Brigades Online.

File path: Brigades Online > Brigade > Service History & Awards > About the Awards.
