2019/2020 Awards of Excellence

We all know them – members who care, give up their time and want to make a difference in the organisation. The Surf Life Saving Illawarra Awards of Excellence celebrate the incredible people in our organisation and the impact they have on their clubs, its members and their local communities. Surf Life Saving Illawarra Awards will be switching up their strategy in the wake of the coronavirus crisis. The SLSI AOE event was slated to take place Saturday 27 June at the City Beach Function Centre in Wollongong, but there’s been a change of plan. In response to the pandemic and ongoing safety concerns this year the event won’t be held in the usual live format. Instead, award nominees will be announced online from week commencing Monday 22 June and winners announced on Saturday 27 June. Award recipients (except SLS Illawarra awards only – see below) then progress onto the SLSNSW Awards of Excellence that will be announced on Saturday 29th August 2020.
