Pandemic Postponement of the 2019 Club Awards
A Note to the 2019 Club Awards Nominees
As you’ll be aware, the Awards Night planned for May 23rd is not able to go ahead due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. We are all deeply disappointed by this, and were really looking forward to the morale boost after the catastrophic impact bushfires had on so many of our Victorian clubs & communities. However, it is in our best interest to wait the pandemic out and celebrate when it is safe to do so. In light of current events, we’ll have even more reason to come together in a Big Night Out for clubs – which will be held in a year’s time on 15th of May 2021.
We do want to ensure that all your hard work putting the submissions together will not be in vain. We have made the decision to merge the award year to include both 2019 and 2020 together as one, since by all accounts 2020 has been no average year for any club. Many will struggle to nominate for 2020 alone, but we think we can agree that the actions undertaken during this year are commendable across the board and deserving of recognition.
This does mean that we will be opening submissions later in the year to all member clubs, and they will be eligible to submit new nominations for the 2019-20 award year which will cover both calendar years.
As you have already nominated, we will give you opportunity to:
- Leave your 2019 submissions as-is and they will now be considered as submission for the 2019-20 award year; and/or
- You may give your nomination a ‘top-up’ for club activities over the 2020 calendar year. We will be in touch with you later in the year to facilitate this, when we re-open submissions for the 2019-20 award year. If you don’t have records of what you’ve submitted or would like a copy, those can be supplied at that time; and/or
- Change any individual nominations-unfortunately, we understand that some individuals that were nominated might not still be employed with the club, and we will leave to your discretion how you wish to handle that.
In the meantime, look after yourself & stay safe.
CCV Annual Club Awards
The CCV Awards are designed to recognise the high performing individuals and clubs whose efforts contribute to the social and economic well-being of their local communities. CCV membership spans metropolitan and regional community clubs, delivering a vast array of programs, sports, dining and entertainment facilities.
Every club has stories about the relationships they form in their local community with the help of amazing staff and volunteers. This is one way of acknowledging those achievements and celebrating them!
Who can nominate?
Nominations for the awards can be made by any financial member on behalf of their club or an alternate CCV member club. So pull out the camera and get some winning snaps for your nominations!
