Service and Merit Awards
Each year YHA formally recognises those members who have volunteered their time to the organisation by presenting service and merit awards at the AGM. Nominations for these awards may be made by National Board, a Branch Committee, a Members Group, a group of six senior financial members, or the Awards Committee. Nominations for Service and Merit Awards are now open and will close at midday on Wednesday, 23 December 2020.
Honorary Life Membership
May be awarded to persons (who need not be members) who have made an exceptional voluntary contribution to YHA. This contribution would generally be at a national level, for the benefit of YHA as a whole, and usually over an extended period of time.
Distinguished Service Award
May be awarded to Senior Financial Members who have made an exceptional voluntary contribution to YHA, particularly at a Branch or Member Group level.
Certificate of Merit
May be awarded to persons (who need not be members) who have made a significant voluntary contribution to YHA at a local level.
Membership & Governance Review
As the Board and YHA staff focus on surviving the Covid crisis and positioning YHA for the future, the work on the Membership and Governance Review project has been paused.
