Ollie Bailey Award
The Ollie Bailey award was established in honour of Ollie to recognize the outstanding contribution she made to RAC and is specifically for RAC Students. Two outstanding students will be awarded $500 each which can be used for a RAC Professional Development course. One candidate will be selected from eastern Canada and one from western Canada. For this award east is Ontario and eastwards and west includes Manitoba, westwards, the Northwest Territories and outside of Canada.
Ollie Bailey served RAC with all her heart. She truly had a passion for Reflexology, she served as a director of RAC as well as for the International council of Reflexology. She organized the ICR Vancouver convention in 1996 and started the BC Chapter. Her enthusiasm for educating herself and others was so apparent and she gave of herself in every way. The students who receive these awards will be those whose start in Reflexology suggests great things of them in the years ahead; two people who will give of themselves in the pursuit of excellence in the profession and a total commitment to the Association.
In the past, it has been the teachers who have nominated the students and it has worked well. Now is the time of change for RAC and the process for these awards is no different. Now it will be the students themselves who submit their names for consideration and we hope that a large number of those who are currently students or have gone through the student process since the last Conference in 2006 will seek to win.
The awards will be made every two years at the RAC Conference and the first will be in Montreal in November. One condition is that the winners must be present at the Conference to receive the awards surely not too much to ask when we are seeking commitment to RAC. They must also be fully paid up members of RAC.
The things that the selection panel will be looking for and considering are:
- Volunteer service to RAC, their local Chapter and community
- A demonstrated desire to pursue an ongoing career in Reflexology
- A demonstrated willingness to be active in contributing ongoing volunteer services to RAC
- A sustained commitment to RAC and Reflexology
- Accomplishments to date in the field of Reflexology both personal and professional
- Commitment to the RAC Continuing Education Programme
Members who are currently students or have been in the student programme since October 2006 are eligible to apply and should do so on the form which can be downloaded below. The application form should be returned to RAC Head Office no later than October 6th 2008 and should be accompanied by a cover letter which includes reference to the following:
- What are your goals for practicing Reflexology?
- What will be your continued involvement with the Association?
- How has- or how will – Reflexology provided opportunities for personal and professional growth.
Shortlisted candidates can expect to be called for a telephone interview and the winners will be notified in good time to attend the conference (though it is to be hoped you are already registered!)
