Rising Star Awar 2018Each year the CCANSW holds its  Rising Star Award award, which  acknowledges industry excellence, improvement, dedication and knowledge sharing.  The award is CCANSW sponsorship for a member’s representative to attend work experience at another cemetery or crematoria in NSW (or Australia) and also to attend a CCANSW Conference. 


The benefits of nominating for the award are exceptional.  Rising Star Award recipients will have opportunities that may not have been presented to them before. The recipient will be able to spend five days at another cemetery or crematoria provider (within NSW or Australia) learning the way in which that facility operates and functions.  They will have an opportunity to learn or enhance their own skills as well as being able to pass on their knowledge and ideas to others.  This facility/organisation will be chosen by the CCANSW Executive Committee and will be one that complements the knowledge of the recipient.

The recipient will also have the chance to attend a CCANSW Conference.  This will allow the recipient to hear first hand the issues being dealt with by the industry and provide them with the opportunity to network and build new friendships and relationships, as well as pick up many new ideas.

Nominations are only available to CCANSW members, who can download and information brochure and application here, or click this link for information about joining the CCANSW as a member.
