The MA 2020 Awards

While the current situation has unfortunately made it necessary to cancel all upcoming national MA events, we will still be recognising and rewarding the excellence of our branches and individual members.

The nomination and judging process will remain unchanged. While we are unable to hold an awards ceremony this year, the names of the winners will be published in the December/January issue of the magazine and shared via our newsletters and website.

Thank you to those who have submitted nominations.   Nominations have now closed, judging will take place on the 17th September with three judges and we will be letting members know who has won shortly after this.

The categories are:

  • MIC Innovation Award
    Awarded to the branch which has created and incorporated something new and innovative to their MIC programme.
  • MIC Presenter of the Year Award
    Awarded to the MIC Presenter who has gone the extra mile at a local level to present and educate on the justice system

  • Branch of the Year Award
    Awarded to the branch that the panel believes has gone above and beyond, in communication, training, fundraising and representing its branch/branch members, and is a credit to the MA nationally.
