There's a lot going on around The Nationals and the easiest way to stay in touch is by registering your email address. We send weekly roundups of all our activity as well as special briefings for important events and policy announcements.

There are many members of our Party who dedicate their free time to support The Nationals’ cause. To celebrate the achievements, dedication and service of those who go above and beyond for our Party, nominations have opened for our annual Party Awards. Former chairman Christine Ferguson was the recipient of Life Membership last year. Who will it be this year?

There are three types of awards that are presented at the NSW Nationals Annual General Conference including:  

Life Membership - the highest honour for a very select number of outstanding and dedicated members. Only 65 Life Memberships have been awared in our Party's history.

Special Certificate of Merit - awarded to members with a particularly strong, diligent and continual history of service, above and beyond an awardee of The Certificate of Appreciation.  

The Certificate of Appreciation - for those who have also displayed long-term service as an office-bearer, or as a particularly active member of a Branch or Electorate Council.

These awards exist to acknowledge the work that goes into campaigns and the lengthy hours spent with constituents at events. From flipping the snags at a community BBQ to letter-dropping in your local electorate, although your work for this Party may at times seem small or even mundane in a constantly shifting and demanding political landscape, we want to be sure we acknowledge the most active Nats for their ongoing contribution.

Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner but being nominated shows that your efforts have not gone unnoticed. Nomination forms can be found here. If you have any questions, please contact Jack our Membership Officer on 92995811 or
