HONOURS - LIFE MEMBERSHIP

Purpose:

Life membership may be conferred on officials or associates of Bunbury Dynamos Junior Soccer Club, whose contribution is so outstanding that it is of lasting importance to the advancement of the club and junior soccer in the South West of Western Australia. It is intended to reflect honour upon the Bunbury Dynamos Junior Soccer Club as well as upon the individual.

Criteria for selection:

To be eligible for life membership, a person should be so outstanding that there can be no question about his/her suitability.

Honorary membership should be conferred because of a contribution of more than passing interest and of more than individual achievement.

The recipient may be as an official, coach or a closely related discipline.

The award is made at the behest of the Club's committee. The criteria for becoming a Life Member is:

1. Those who have made an outstanding contribution to Bunbury Dynamos Junior Soccer Club.
