CEnvP Scheme Service Award

Inaugural CEnvP Scheme Service Award

The winner of the 2020 CEnvP Scheme Service Award was announced during the EIANZ Virtual Annual Conference on 25 November 2020.

This year two winners were selected for their outstanding volunteer contribution as an individual to the values, success, and development of the Certified Environmental Practitioner Scheme in the areas of initiative, positive leadership, reliability and technical values.

We are very pleased to announce the winners of this year’s CEnvP Scheme Service Award 2020;

Amy Valentine CEnvP SC, NSW

Amy has been a member of the CEnvP Site Contamination Specialist Environmental Advisory Committee (SEAC) and an active member of the Site Contamination Certification Appeal Committee since 2017. As a member of the SC Appeal Committee she has volunteered as a Chair numerous times showing great work ethic, competency and leaderships attributes. Her contribution as part of the SC SEAC and SC Appeal Committee has been invaluable and she has consistently worked to uphold the impartiality and fairness values of the Scheme.

 

Jeremy Hogben, CEnvP SC, WA

Jeremy has gone above and beyond in his volunteer work for CEnvP, undertaking reviews of numerous applicant submissions. He has been encouraging of individuals in applying for certification and has taken the time outside of his day-to-day role to make himself available to answer questions and discuss the process with anyone who needs it. As a well-respected leader in his field in Western Australia, we are very grateful for the incredibly valuable time that Jeremy has contributed to the CEnvP program, not only in undertaking the reviews of numerous applications, but also in the continuous promotion of the CEnvP values.

Thank you to both of these recipients for your contributions and dedication to the scheme. Congratulations! 

The Story Behind the CEnvP Scheme Service Award

Since the CEnvP Scheme commenced in 2004, a range of individuals have provided unpaid support and input to the scheme through a variety of mechanisms, from interviews to application review to certification development, support activities and more. The contribution of these individuals is greatly valued by the CEnvP Scheme and an integral part to ensuring a contemporary, and robust certification program, and a vital part of the ongoing success of the program.

The CEnvP Scheme Service Award celebrates the outstanding volunteer contribution an individual has made to the values, success, and development of the Certified Environmental Practitioner Scheme in the areas of initiative, positive leadership, reliability and technical values.

The award is open to all unpaid individuals who have contributed to CEnvP related activities during the previous 18 months of the award.

Anyone can put forward a nomination, including to self-nominate.
The nominator or nominee is not required to be certified as the award recognises the contribution made by the volunteer to the CEnvP Scheme. For example, CEnvP Alumni or some stakeholder group members of our Specialist Environmental Advisory Committees.

The award will be considered against the following areas of consideration:

  • Demonstrated positive values and leadership characteristics
  • Effectiveness and delivered outcomes of their effort to the CEnvP Scheme operation and/or strategic direction, and reliability
