Description & Criteria

Started in 1996, the President's Award has evolved to become the "Meritorious Service Award" of the Clan Campbell Society (North America) that recognizes the member who has demonstrated not only years of dictated service to Clan Campbell and the Clan Campbell Society (North America) but also someone who exemplifies the spirit of Clan Campbell. This award is not necessarily presented every year, but as warranted, by the achievements of an individual. The individual under consideration must be a member in good standing of the Clan Campbell Society (North America) as defined by the Society's Bylaws. To qualify for the award, the Society member's dedication should promote the Clan Campbell and the Clan Campbell Society (North America) in two or more of the following ways:


1. Served the Clan Campbell Society (North America) for at least two (2) years.


2. Distinguished himself or herself by either outstanding achievement or meritorious service. The performance must be such as to merit recognition for service which is clearly exceptional.


3. Displayed extraordinary leadership ability setting an example for others.


4. Individuals who made outstanding contributions to Clan Campbell or the Clan Campbell Society (North America).


5. Authorship of a published work, or body of works, on Clan Campbell history or genealogy that promotes and preserves our Campbell heritage.


Receipt of this award does not disqualify an individual from any other current or future awards or recognitions from the Clan Campbell or the Clan Campbell Society (North America).

The award shall be an engraved plaque, and an engraved wearable insignia of the President's Award, all commensurate with the nature of the award.

Nominations for the President's Award shall be submitted, in writing, no less than 60 days prior to the scheduled AGM (Annual General Meeting), to and selected by the President of the Clan Campbell Society (North America).

The President shall ensure that the awards are properly prepared and available in time for the presentation at the Annual General Meeting of the Clan Campbell Society (North America).
