Nominations Open for NAB Volunteer Awards
Monday, 23rd April 2007 at 12:48 pm

What would your volunteers say about your organisation? Would they praise the way you’ve looked after them, recruited them or how you keep them motivated?

If you have a system that’s worth promoting, then it’s time to nominate your organisation for the NAB Volunteer Awards.

Volunteering Australia has been the principal partner in the NAB Volunteer Awards which reward volunteer groups that demonstrate ‘best practice’ in the management of volunteers, and recognise that a positive volunteering experience is crucial to the overall success of any community initiative.

Former Olympian and National Trust Living Treasure Raelene Boyle will lead the 2007 NAB Volunteer Awards campaign to recognise best practice in Australian volunteering.

As NAB Volunteer Awards Ambassador, Raelene will work with NAB and Volunteering Australia to recognise groups for providing a positive experience for their volunteers.

As a judge of the 2006 NAB Volunteer Awards, Raelene said the standard of volunteer management in the community was exceptional.

It’s 10 years since the NAB Volunteer Awards were launched and in that time over 452 groups have shared $2.3 million in recognition of their ‘best practice’ volunteering.

NAB recognises the importance of volunteering to the entire community, with over 40% of Australians giving their time to Not for Profit groups. The Awards work to recognise the development of the volunteering sector through innovation.

In 2007, 24 winning groups across six states and two categories will share in $215,000. State winners in the Awards will receive $10,000 and two groups chosen as national winners will receive an extra $10,000.

The 2007 NAB Volunteer Awards have a new simpler format developed in response to feedback from volunteer organisations during the 2006 Awards.

You can nominate your organisation into one of two categories:

Small to Medium Organisation
A not-for-profit organisation that has 0-15 full-time-equivalent (FTE) paid staff.

Large Organisation
A Not for Profit organisation that has 15+ full-time-equivalent (FTE) paid staff

Nominations close Friday 8 June 2007
Community groups can apply online or by completing a printed nomination form.

Nomination forms and judging criteria can be downloaded from www.nab.com.au/volunteering and will also be available from any National Australia Bank branch.
