The RON HOOKER AWARD for Exemplary Service

This award is to recognise significant past or current service or contribution to the NZIFST, developing the affairs of the Institute, its Branches or Divisions. 

This award has been established to honour and recognise the outstanding contribution given by Ron Hooker to the NZIFST since its formation in 1965.

The RON HOOKER Award REPLACES the original Award for Exemplary Services that was initiated in 1993, and which had a narrower focus of recognising those who gave exceptional service to the Institute, and might not otherwise be recognised.
