IHBC President David McDonald is encouraging members to consider nominations for the newly launched Marsh Awards for Successful Learning in Heritage Skills and for Community Contribution (Retired Member of the IHBC).
David McDonald writes:
‘The nomination process is extremely simple, while the winners are recognised with cash awards of £500 and a free full place at the IHBC’s Annual School every June, where we present the awards. For learners, both the funding and the education from the School could be a critical step-up in their trade or career. For retired members of the IHBC (all categories), if the cash is not a priority, it could be donated to another deserving cause, as well as raising its profile.’
He added: ‘So please do consider promoting nominations or, for someone deserving that you know, completing the easy-fill form yourself, for one or both awards, as follows:
- Retired IHBC
It does take a little effort, but could make all the difference to someone’s life skills or cherished projects.’
Nomination forms must be submitted by February 28th each year.
