Nomination Form - Honorary Membership

The nomination form for Honorary Memberships is attached. The nominee does not have to be a current member of CBTF and, in fact, this award is particularly suited to recognizing a friend of the sport that is not an active member.

Completed Nomination Forms should be sent to the CBTF 1st Vice-President, Karen Gratton. Nominations may be sent by email to 1stvp [at] cbtf [dot] ca. They can also be sent by Regular Mail - please email 1stvp [at] cbtf [dot] ca and request instructions.

The nomination deadline for the Honorary Membership is May 1, 2016.

Please note: Any CBTF Member in good standing may make a nomination for Honorary Membership.

Nominees shall have served the CBTF on a national level for a minimum of three years however service to provincial bodies is also taken into consideration. Recipients of this award are no longer active in CBTF or the sport nor do they hold a current CBTF membership; however, their contributions as past members have had a long-lasting effect on the development of baton twirling as it is today in Canada and, possibly, at the international level. Honorary Members shall have the privilege of speaking, but shall not be entitled to vote or hold office or otherwise conduct the business of the Federation. They shall, however, be entitled to all services extended by the Federation to active members.
