The President’s Award recognises the achievements of those who volunteer directly for Making Music. Nominations are considered each July and announced annually at Making Music's Council Meeting.
Some of those volunteers have been with Making Music for a very long time and their efforts have had a significant impact. It was in recognition of this fact that the Award was established early in 2010, although it is far from being merely a long-service certificate.
Nominations are invited from both staff and board members and only those who have given exceptional service are successful.
