Conventions can rob you of valuable lead-time
in the ordering of awards.
The ALF Trustees are all required to attend
convention. We have the AGM to attend, voting for changes to the Trust Deeds if
required, voting for Trustees as their terms expire, manning the display booth
to answer your questions, and so the list goes on.
This means, of course, that Treasurer Damian
is not at home to bank your cheques when they arrive and forward the award
application to Awards Coordinator.
When you consider that the Trustees may also
take the opportunity to have their annual break around convention, it can mean
that nothing happens for at least a week and maybe longer. The awards are
manufactured in Tasmania, and the 4 weeks requested as the minimum lead-time can
easily be reduced quite dramatically due to these absences, and this places
unnecessary stress on all concerned.
So, please bear this in mind when you are determining which deserving Lion, or
person you will nominate to be honoured with an ALF award. Place your
application as early as you can so that the Trustees donít have to contact you
with the bad news that the awards that you require canít be delivered in time
for the presentation.
Continue to support YOUR Foundation as you have done so well in the past, but
PLEASE get your applications in early to avoid disappointment, particularly
around Convention time.
