Section Service Award
The Textile Institute Section Service Award recognises distinguished and active service by a member over many years to a particular Section or National Committee. This award is made to an Institute member only. It is not intended that purely nominal service on a Committee or as an Honorary Officer of a Section should be recognised by the award, nor would mere length of service in any capacity be an automatic criterion for making an award.
Prof. R U Kuruppu, 2010
The Institute Medal
The oldest award of the Institute, inaugurated in 1921. An award which recognises distinguished service to the industry in general and to the Institute.
