SRP Honours

SRP Honours and the Role of SRP ' s Honours Nominations Advisory Committee ( HNAC )
SRP ' s Honours Nomination Advisory Committee ( HNAC ) has two key functions . Firstly to recommend to Council worthy recipients of SRP Honours ( Founders ' Medal , Honorary Fellowship and presenter of The Dunster Lecture at the Annual Conference ). Secondly , to recommend to SRP ’ s President individuals who should be nominated by SRP to receive a UK Public Honour e . g . OBE .
HNAC comprises five or six members of SRP who themselves have received Public Honours . They welcome your suggestions of SRP members you think should be considered for Society honours ( noting that Honorary Fellowships are occasionally given to non-members and The Dunster Lecturer need not necessarily be an SRP member ). The Committee needs information on your suggested nominee ' s achievements and what makes them stand out from the crowd . HNAC can then carefully evaluate the information provided and reach a consensus on nominees they should recommend to Council , backed by supporting evidence so Council can make the final decision .
Nominations are invited at the beginning of June each year via a notice in SRP Weekly , where reference is made to detailed guidance HNAC has prepared .
Additionally , every four years HNAC liaises with the Partner Societies via the Committee for Liaison with IRPA and the Partner Societies ( CLIPS ) to recommend to SRP Council a nominee for the IRPA Sievert Award .
