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 provide their past president with a badge to mark their time as president and this is normally presented at your AGM.

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.

All CII Service Awards are to be worn on the ribbon supplied with the medal. The Bridgewater Award is worn with a blue ribbon edged with silver piping. The Exceptional Service Award is worn with a blue ribbon. The Distinguished Service Award is supplied as a lapel badge to be pinned on the right hand side. The awards should be worn at all CII formal functions and on other formal occasions when the invitation states that decorations and other medals should be displayed.

Other badges are also available for deputy presidents, vice presidents and local committee chairs.

For more information, please contact your Regional Membership Manager.
