There are two forms of recognition for men’s work in Maritime Conference:

1. Award of Exceptional Merit (AEM): To recognize [living] United Church men who have demonstrated exemplary leadership and activity in working with men of the church over many years.  

2. Honour Roll (HR): Exactly the same criterion, but for men who are deceased of Exceptional Merit (AEM): To recognize [living] United Church men who have demonstrated exemplary leadership and activity in working with men of the church over many years. 

The Award of Exceptional Merit was instituted in Sept. 2002, in time for the October 2002 rally, our first biennial. The first recipients were A. Peter Murray of Sydney, NS, who is a regular attender of rallies – including April 2012, and Lorimer Harris (now deceased) of Charlottetown.

The Honour Roll was instituted by a motion at the 2004 rally, in time for a list of 20  to be drawn up in time for the 2006 rally. That list is included on a board stored at Trinity-St. Stephen’s UC in Amherst, where we hold our rallies, and bring out the board to display during that day.
