The results of the survey of Members on the policy for presenting Certificates of Merit for Club competitions was reviewed by the Management Committee on 11th March. In total there were 22 responses (15% of the membership) and of these:
12 voted for option 3 – that certificates be available only on the website so those who wished to do so could download their own copy;
5 voted that the current policy
5 voted for certificates to be presented for those gaining a mark of 10 but for 9 and 9.5 these be available on the website
Whilst the majority preferred the website only option the Management Committee were aware that those who support the status quo and variations of it felt strongly that to have a policy of Certificates being only available on the website undermined their value.
After considering all options the Management Committee decided that Certificates of Merit will be presented on the night for all those achieving a mark of 10 for both prints and PDIs and in addition Certificates for those achieving 9, 9.5 and 10 will also be produced on the website for download (see Jeff’s post below). I hope all members will feel this is an acceptable compromise
