(revised and ratified by the Board in February 2011)
1. The Association Medal is awarded at the discretion of the Board to a New Zealand citizen who has made an outstanding contribution to the water industry and the Association within their life. It can only be awarded to a single person in any one year and is unlikely to be awarded every year.
2. A submission for an Association Medal would initially be made to the Awards Committee. The Awards Committee would make the recommendation to the Board. The final decision of awarding the medal would be solely at the discretion of the Board.
3. The following criteria shall be reviewed by the Board in reaching a decision to make the award that appraises the extent of the person's contribution to the protection of public health of communities or the protection of water resources.
4. In order to retain the exclusivity and esteem of this award, there will only be a very limited number of living holders of the Association Medal at any one time.
The Medal will be presented at a ceremony that provides an opportunity for Association members to acknowledge the outstanding contribution of the recipient.
