well. If you're going to mount a campaign for someone, then be sure that
the people involved are submitting their own ideas and views of the
person involved -- it does help to get a more rounded view.
And it helps a great deal if you can cite specific examples of service,
courtesy, prowess, assistance, skill depending on the nature of the award
you're suggesting. That's why sending recommendations immediately after
an event, while things are fresh in your mind, is a Good Idea.
When B&B, we kept a populace activity document (like a permanent record :-
) where we noted who had served in what office, stewarded or assisted at
events, notes from event stewards as to who had been particularly
helpful, verbal comments from the populace etc. Very handy when providing
award or Order recommendations to be able to pull out a long list of what
someone had done. You don't have to be a B&B or a Peer to keep an eye on
