Report for Associations TVFFAF 2012-2013


It once again gives me much pleasure to submit my report for the TVFFAF.

This year the executive has made some minor rule changes, pertaining to membership terminology and have redesigned the nomination form so that more specific information can be shown by nominators.

The Junior/Cadet rules were discussed and will left as is for this year.


This year there has been a total of 39 nominations.

TFS Volunteer Medal                                    TFS Volunteer Award                                      Clasps

21 Volunteer Brigades                                   1 Volunteer Brigades                                        2

18 Retained Brigades                                      1 Retained Brigades

39 Total                                                                2 Total


The TFS Youth Award has received a total of 2 nominations for the year. This Award has not appealed to brigades as much as we would like. I believe it is up to the Associations to promote this Award more as it is being stated that Junior/Cadets are not being recognised when they gain senior membership of their brigade as per out-comes at North West Forum

This award has been established for cadets/Junior members so we need to talk to brigades with cadets and give them the recognition they deserve. 

Funding for the Framework will remain at $2,500.00 per association for this year and will be reviewed as required

The Management Committee is Don Mackrill AFSM, Bruce Corbett AFSM and State Co-ordinator Robert Atkins AFSM, who have met twice during the year to discuss issues that have arisen.
