Honorary Life Membership
Nomination Policy

RSPCA Victoria is committed to recognising individuals who have made a significant voluntary contribution to animal welfare. This policy outlines the eligibility, criteria and processes for nominating and awarding Honorary Life Membership of RSPCA Victoria.

Eligibility
       

The following individuals are eligible for nomination:            
  • Volunteers in regular on-going involvement - 20 years.
  • Individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to improving animal welfare (this may include Volunteers, President/Chairperson and Board members who may not have reached the service milestones).
  • President/Chairperson - 10 years service.
  • Board members - 15 years service.

Criteria

Each nomination will be judged on its merits. Achievement of the service eligibility does not automatically qualify someone to receive Honorary Life Membership. Outstanding contribution criteria may include:
              

  • An individual campaigning for animal welfare changes that achieved
    the desired outcome e.g. legislative improvements.
  • An individual contribution that results in substantial improvement in
    facilities for animal welfare.
  • Individuals who have shown leadership in their local community which
    has positively influenced community views about animal welfare.
  • An RSPCA Victoria donor who has regularly contributed financially over a period
    of 20 years or more.

Note: Paid staff are excluded from nomination as their contributions are recognised under our organisation's People Management Framework.

Nomination Process

  • Nominations can be made by any RSPCA Victoria member, employee or volunteer, on the approved application form to be provided.
  • Nominations will be reviewed by the CEO and Executive Management Team.
  • Nominations will be considered and awards determined by the RSPCA Victoria Board.
  • Award nominations will be called for at the set time each year: 1 - 31 July.
  • RSPCA Victoria Board will review nominations annually at the August board meeting, so that the successful nominee/s can receive a presentation at the AGM.

Documentation

Nominations must be completed online through the Honorary Life Membership nomination form which opens in June/July of each year.
