Return of Volunteer Recognition Programme
29th October 2007 By Munster Rugby
Munster Rugby is pleased to announce the commencement of the Right Price Tiles Volunteer Recognition Programme for the 2007-08 season.
The scheme is now into its third year and we would like to thank Mr. Chris Dineen, Managing Director of Right Price Tiles for his ongoing support. The programme is aimed at giving Clubs and Schools the opportunity to acknowledge the significant contribution made by individuals who have developed, promoted and/or advanced the sport of Rugby in the local community and in the province.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of every sport and leisure organisation in Ireland. They contribute time and energy year after year to assist in the development of sport and leisure activities. Without these people our clubs and organisations would fail to function effectively. Munster Rugby identifies the need to recognise and reward those individuals that have devoted their time by honouring them with a recognition programme.
The programme will reward and acknowledge the efforts of volunteers who devote countless hours week in week out, year after year to provide a safe and enjoyable environment at the grass roots of the game. From the kitchen worker to the weekend linesman to the parents that manage under-age sides, it is up to you to nominate worthy contributors.
The programme will run from November 2007 to May 2008 with a reward scheme consisting of six individual "Volunteer of the Month" awards. The Volunteer Recognition programme is open to any person currently associated with domestic rugby in Munster, in a non-paid capacity at a club, school, college, university or associated affiliate of Munster Branch IRFU.
Successful nominees who meet the set criteria will be recognised for their efforts by receiving a prize package including 2 tickets to a Munster match and a €250 voucher redeemable in the Munster Rugby Store.
Nominations should include the following information:
What role(s) or area(s) has the nominee fulfilled at your club, school or association?
Explain why you feel the nominee’s contribution to rugby was outstanding.
Eligibility and Conditions of Entry:
Each nominee must have served in his/her role(s) for no less than two years.
Persons who are paid in any form, other than reimbursement for expenses, are ineligible for nomination.
You may not nominate yourself for this award.
Individuals being nominated should be informed by the nominator.
