AFOA BC Band Administrator Recognition Award for 2019

The Aboriginal Financial Officers Association of BC is proud to offer the 7th Annual Band Administrator Recognition Award. The purpose of this award is to give recognition to Band Administrators who have displayed excellence and quality in their work with First Nations communities over a period of time.

Band Administrators face difficult challenges in their work and many have worked tirelessly on behalf of their community. It is time that we recognize and honour these leaders in our community.

We will be presenting this award at our annual Band Administration conference to be held at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Resort in Parksville, BC from June 12-14, 2019.

To nominate a band administrator for this award, here are the requirements:

· 1-2 page letter describing your nominee’s excellence in areas of leadership, management, financial management or HR management. Include many examples and as much detail as possible.

· Provide your name, the nominees name and contact information, a profile, biography or resume that includes the number of years that the band administrator has been employed with the organization.

· 1 page letter of support from Chief and Council.

Each recipient will be awarded with:

· Conference fees, travel and accommodation to attend the award event

· A memorable plaque

· A $1500 certificate to use towards AFOA BC products, conferences or community based workshops
