Honours and Awards Committee (HAC) (2015-2018)


Objective/Scope of the Committee

The principle functions of the HAC are to:

  • review the structure, terms and conditions of all the honours and awards offered by the IAF to ensure relevance, consistency and standards;
  • recommend or address, as appropriate, new awards or revisions of current awards to or from the Bureau;
  • have oversight, on behalf of the Bureau, of all awards made by IAF subcommittees to ensure standards;
  • select from nominations for awards having no dedicated sub-committee and recommend recipients to the Bureau (e.g. the Alan D. Emil Memorial Award).
