FUSA Club Awards

Each year, FUSA recognises the fantastic achievements of its affiliated Clubs, Collectives & Associations in an annual award ceremony. Nominations typically open toward the end of the previous year. The awards are announced during the Orientation period and recognise Club/Collective/Association achievements over the previous calendar year.

All executive, committee and general members of FUSA affiliated Clubs, Collectives & Associations are encouraged to attend the Club Awards. Speak to your Club/Collective/Association’s Executive for more details closer to the event.
