Gala Success Dinner
7 pm 27th May
Celebrating good practice
Our community is typically too busy achieving to take time out to celebrate success. The Gala Success Dinner is the one exception.
If you know of a project, initiative, individual that deserves recognition, read on.
The Awards are primarily focussed on organisational achievements - the Best Practice Award Categories below are exemplars of that.
However there are two categories that are focussed upon the individual, they are the Distinguished Service Award and the Honorary Life Membership Award.
The DSA is EDNZ's premier individual award and recognises the contribution of individuals to:
the image and practice of ED
research that has advanced the theory or practice of economic development in NZ
the advance of EDNZ
the national or international recognition of the ED profession within NZ
Honorary Life Membership Award
The panel has the opportunity to recognise the long and dedicated service of a practitioner who is retiring.
The winner will have rendered conspicuous service to the profession. Which includes involvement with EDNZ and its forerunner, contributions to economic development education, promotion of the profession to the wider community, representation of the profession in Government, non-Government, and community bodies or forums and the list goes on.
Best Practice Awards
EDNZ recognises seven categories of endeavour through the best practice awards. They are:
Collaboration with iwi, business and community
Business Support Recovery Initiatives
The winners of each of the above categories are contenders for the Premier Best Practice Award.
