ACRS FELLOWSHIP AWARD
2017 ACRS Fellowship Award
 
In Recognition of Exemplary Individuals
Working in Road Safety!

 
 

The Announcement

 
The announcement of the 2017 ACRS Fellowship will be made during the ARSC2017 Conference Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony on Wednesday 11 October 2017, in the Grand Ballroom, Perth Crown Resort, in front of 500 of our most eminent road safety professionals.

 

 

The Award

 
The prestigious ACRS Fellowship is recognised as the Australasian road safety community’s highest honour, recognising an individual for their outstanding commitment and effectiveness in their efforts to reduce road trauma.  The Australasian College of Road Safety first instituted the award of College Fellow in 1991.  The list of Fellows since the inception of the award is a record of significant achievement by these outstanding individuals.
 

Fellows must be acknowledged by colleagues and co-workers as outstanding, by virtue of contributions to road safety rather than their position.  The contributions must be of such a nature that they have led to substantial growth and improvement in an important institution or organisation, body of knowledge or aspect of thought and practice associated with road safety.
