Recipients are first nominated by a member of the community. Following nominations, a Richmond Hill Review Committee establishes that the information received about the nominee is accurate and that the nominee is eligible to receive the Volunteer Achievement Award. The Committee will then send a letter or email to the individual confirming the nomination has been received. Recipients are then recommended to Council for final selection. Those selected are then invited to attend a special ceremony in April acknowledging their Award.
