RULES TO BECOME A
It should be noted that
wearing the SUPPORTER crest is a privilege. To become a crest
wearing SUPPORTER , the person must be sponsored and recommended by
a Veteran UN NATO Canada member. (ie Veterans-support, Ladies,
Supporter members, and others cannot sponsor a SUPPORTER).
A candidate for the
SUPPORTER crest must wait a probationary period of six months,
during which he or she must demonstrate their interest and
commitment to the group and the various Veterans causes. The Member
agrees to integrate the group and accepts to adhere to the
fundamental principles, vision and values of our mission.
The Veteran UN NATO
Canada member who
proposes to sponsor a SUPPORTER, shall submit to the regional
representative an official request and a description of the reasons why this person
deserves the privilege of wearing the SUPPORTER crest. A
probationary period of a minimum of six months will begin on the date on which
the official request has been put to the regional representative.
Once the probationary period is completed, and the
candidate has demonstrated his interest and commitment to the group,
final approval will be made by the regional representative. It is important to note that the Veteran member
sponsoring an applicant for the SUPPORTER crest understands that as
a sponsor they are largely responsible for the actions of the
If a conflict arises
between the member and his SUPPORTER sponsor (or even with other
members of the group), the facts will be reported to the Provincial
representative which will evaluate the issue and, if need be, with the help
of the president, will make the final
decision as to what appropriate actions are deemed necessary.
Contrary to the Veterans crest, the SUPPORTER crest does not belong
to the SUPPORTER. If it is deemed necessary to band the SUPPORTER he
must return his crest and an amount of 60% of the paid cost
will be refunded (as long as the crest is in good shape) It is
important that the sponsor makes sure that the candidate understands
this rule before he joins.
It will be the Regional
Representative responsibility to ensure that the ratio of 1
(Supporter) for each 10 (Veterans) is respected. NOTE: This ration
is a maximum not a minimum. If, for a reason of their own, a
region prefers to lower this ratio (ex: 1 Supporter for each 25
veterans) or even, to the limit, not accept any Supporters, it is
their privilege to do so.
An Honorary President is a member who does not
exercise his functions as President but has earned an honourable
title. He no longer has any official function, but provides
excellent advice and experience to the one that replaces him. He is hereby
recognized to provide advice on certain matters while ensuring that
they do not force any decisions. In addition, this title can be a
form of recognition or support for the new President. This title is
an appreciation for the good and loyal services given during his
term as President. It is the duty of every member to respect the
Honorary Presidents for what they have brought to the group in the
