INDIVIDUAL AWARDS POLICY

AMERICAN ROSE SOCIETY

INDIVIDUAL AWARDS POLICY

 

 

 

 

Article I

Purpose

 

The American Rose Society (“ARS”) makes a number of national and district awards in recognition

of member achievements including the Gold Honor Medal, the Klima Medal, the Guy Blake Hedrick

Jr. Award and the District Silver Honor Medal. Such awards recognize sustained lifetime

achievement by an individual or couple in devoting and focusing their talents and expertise to the

promotion of the objectives and mission of the ARS or a District of the ARS. The rules and

procedures for each award are generally stated separately and the selection of the recipient is made

by different ARS Committees. This Individual Awards Policy (the “Policy ”) is intended to

override all such procedures in order to assure that all ARS national and district awards in

recognition of member achievements are awarded annually. Further, it is intended to restore the

honor of such awards by prominently remembering and honoring recipients through an

appropriate article in the American Rose at the time of the award, and the maintenance of a

complete list of recipients in a prominent place on the ARS and District websites.

 

Article II

Application

 

a. This Policy is applicable to all ARS national and district awards in recognition of member

achievements including specifically the Gold Honor Medal, the Klima Medal, the Guy Blake Hedrick

Jr. Award and the District Silver Honor Medal.

b. It shall be the duty of the chairperson of the relevant committee charged with making

such award to assure that as long as there is at least one person eligible that the award be made

c. This Policy overrides any procedure in conflict with this Policy. In the event of any

conflict between this Policy and procedures otherwise applicable to the award, this Policy shall

govern.
