Whilst I never set out to seek recognition for the work that I do, whether it be paid or voluntary it is always nice to be recognised.
In June 2014 I was given a Macquarie University Recognition Award for ongoing commitment to the first Accounting PACE unit (“Accountants in the Profession”) as an industry partner and member in practice, outlining to third year students the different parts of the accounting profession.
And just last week I was awarded a Special Service Award for Good Service to Scouts Australia by His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) (having been the honourary auditor of the Eastwood Marsfield Region since May 2004)
It is these little unexpected acknowledgments that make it all worth my time and effort to help make a difference where I can. 🙂
Notification letter re my Scouts Special Service Award I will be attending a presentation on the 21st of September to receive my award.
