The Meritorious Service Award is presented to outstanding Canadian Media Guild (CMG) members who have served our union and membership on a long-term basis, sacrificing personal and professional time, and who have completed projects of extraordinary benefit to the membership as a whole. The award is presented at CMG’s biennial convention. Our next convention takes place May 25 to 27, in Toronto.
Because it is the highest honour bestowed by our union, the Meritorious Service Award will not be given unless judged by the National Executive to be warranted. Nominations may come from the membership, the national executive or members of the selection committee.
Nominations are being accepted until Monday, May 14, at 5:00 p.m. ET.
For nominations to be considered, they must be accompanied by an explanation from the nominator about why the member deserves the award. Nominations should please include answers to the questions below:
1.What have been the main achievements and accomplishments of the candidate in serving the Guild?
2.Give us some specific examples of ways the candidate has been effective. How have they made a difference to you or others around you? For example, have they been instrumental during a crucial time in some way? Have they demonstrated leadership skills? If so, how?
3.How many years has the person you are nominating served the Guild?
4.In what capacities/on what committees have they served? Are there any other people on those committees who should be contacted by us to talk about your candidate?
5.If relevant, has the person been involved in other labour-related activities outside the Guild?
The selection committee is appointed by CMG’s National Executive Committee. CMG staff and members of the National Executive Committee are not eligible for the award.
Please send nominations, along with supporting rationale, to firstname.lastname@example.org
