A reminder that the British Fencing Honours Committee is now inviting British Fencing members to nominate individuals for British Fencing Honours. The process for so doing is now open and will close on 28th May 2021.
The Honours Committee is responsible for making recommendations to the British Fencing Board for British Fencing awards (responsibility for recommendations for Queen’s or State Honours remains with British Fencing’s Nominations Committee).
This system focuses entirely on the membership with all nominations coming directly from members. The criteria for nominations are laid down on the British Fencing website under “About Us – Committees Zone – Honours Committee”. In response to the effects that the Pandemic has had on fencing this year, nominations will also be welcomed for members who have shown particular prowess in rising to the challenge of keeping clubs and their members engaged across all age ranges during the year.
The committee acts as the selectors with the object of recommending awards in a wide range of categories, whilst ensuring that there is consistency in award levels and criteria. Nominations are considered in committee in June and announced at the British Fencing AGM in October.
British Fencing members aged 18 and over can make nominations to the Honours Committee. The composition of the Committee is published annually on the British Fencing website along with a list of previous successful nominees.
