Colleagues I hope you are all safe and well. We will be sending round a more detailed Newsletter in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, a few brief updates:
Do you know someone amongst our CML community who has demonstrated outstanding innovative, imaginative or impressive service over a period? If you do you may consider nominating them for an award? Read on for further information.
“Nominating someone for an award
The Honours process provides a great opportunity to recognise outstanding individual achievements, and highlight the impressive work going on across public libraries all over the country that makes a significant positive difference to the lives of other people.
To get an honour, people should have:
- made a real impact in their community or workplace
- gained the respect of their peers
- changed things for the better
- demonstrated innovation or entrepreneurship
- exemplified the very best sustained and selfless voluntary service
Honours are not confined to people at senior levels, or those working nationally – nominations are especially welcome for people working at the frontline who have made a real difference locally too. And anyone (individual or organisation) can nominate someone whose work or efforts they think should be recognised in this way.
Here’s how to nominate someone for a national honour; the Honours and Appointments Secretariat would love to hear from you. “
