Each year the Executive of BMW Clubs Australia call for nominations for this prestigious award.
It is awarded to a Club member that has excelled in club life and goes beyond what is asked of any member for the good or benefit of the club and its members. It is not awarded every year and is only awarded to someone that truly deserves it.
Last year I put together a nomination for one of our members. Someone that works tirelessly for all of us, is the backbone of the club and spends her days doing everything she can to make the club such a wonderful place for all of us.
The Executive of Clubs Australia agreed and awarded the 2021 BMW Clubs Australia Award of Excellence to none other than our very own Jo Mawson.
She was very surprised that not only could I nominate her without her knowing, but also receive the trophies and get them down to Phillip Is so I could award it to her during the Zoom meeting that was part 1 of the 2021 BMW Clubs Australia AGM.
Quite amazingly, for once, Jo was speechless! When we called her in in the middle of the Zoom AGM she had no idea why and was totally lost for words. Anyone that knows Jo, will find this hard to believe, but for once Jo didn’t know what to say, other than thank you, she is very honoured and humbled that Clubs Australia have awarded her such a distinction.
Jo is a very deserving recipient of the Award and deserves to be acknowledged for everything she does for us and the club. I am very proud that she was awarded the Award of Excellence, it is quite an honour and very well deserved.
