We are pleased to again be asking for nominations for some of the awards presented by the EBU and EBED.
Please act quickly if you wish to nominate someone for the Alec Salisbury or Tom Bradley Awards – the deadline is 26th May.
The duration and value of the service given by those granted the Award should be significant and substantial, but will be viewed flexibly. They should be volunteers who have contributed to County administration, typically giving 10/15 years’ service to the county.
Board Directors, Vice Presidents, EBU employees and Panel Tournament Directors are excluded from nomination, however after leaving office such people are eligible for an award, if they have also worked hard for bridge at County level.
All nominations can be made by any shareholder, county, or EBU member, but should be made via your County who will then submit the nomination to the EBU stating that approval of the County Committee has been obtained. There is a restriction of two nominations from any one county.
