2016 Staff Awards Night
8 September 2016
Last Tuesday night, Canterbury League Club celebrated the achievements and service of 44 staff members at their annual Staff Awards Night.
Every year the Club recognises staff members who reach five-year service milestones at Canterbury – awards for 5, 10, 15,20 and 25 years were presented to winners from various departments including Food and Beverage, Gaming, Security and Surveillance, C-Life, IT and Reception.
Aside from honouring service milestones, Canterbury also recognises employees who have exhibited the Club’s core values of Courtesy, Attentive, Responsive and Excellence with their RAVE Champion awards. This year recipients were Rhys Wolloghan, Hermiz Hermiz, Steve Taber and Vicki Petsalis.
A new award category was introduced at this year’s award night – Volunteer of the Year Award – which went to Meagan Peek for her tireless dedication to helping out the community through Canterbury’s Staff Community Program. Throughout the year, Meagan has volunteered on numerous occasions to feed the homeless in the city with the Club’s partner program with Maronites on Mission, and has taken part in other staff programs like colouring her hair for The World’s Greatest Shave, Jeans for Genes Day and Jersey Day.
“Canterbury couldn’t be more proud of staff members who received awards – they have shown amazing dedication and loyalty to the Club and upheld the values which makes Canterbury an iconic destination for all our Members and guests,” said Dave Brace, CEO of Canterbury.
