Presidents of local institutes have neck badges which should be worn at all formal CII functions, local institute activities and external functions. The badge is passed on to the new president at each AGM. No member of a local institute, other than the president, may wear the president’s badge.
All institutes then provide their past president with a badge to mark their time as president and this is normally presented at your AGM.
Below are examples of both the standard badge and bar options -
Additional engraving can be added to the back of the medal on the badge, at no further cost – this can be up to 6 lines of no more than 12 characters per line. The wording must be stated within the additional engraving section of the online order form.
Past presidents of local institutes should wear their badges at all formal functions of the local institute or any other formal dinner or event where it is instructed that “medals and/or decorations shall be worn”. The badge should be worn on the right hand side to distinguish them from public medals awarded by the sovereign which must be worn on the left.
Other badges are also available for deputy presidents, vice presidents and local committee chairs, full details as to what engraving is required need to be added to the online order form under the special requests section.
A few local institutes have specific ribbon and engraving colours other than the ‘standard blue’ as shown above. To change the colour of the badge ribbon or engraving, there is an official process that needs to take place which involves gaining your local council’s approval in order to determine the local institute colour for that particular region. For further information relating to this process, please contact the regional engagement administrator.
