Order of MacEanruig

 

The Order of MacEanruig

 

 

Award.   This is an exclusive award to Society members who have had such a positive impact on the Society through sustained contributions and leadership that they are deserving of membership in the Order of MacEanruig.   Holders of the Chief’s Prize are automatically members of the Order of MacEanruig by reason of their having received the Chief’s Prize.  Other individuals may be awarded membership by approval of a majority of the members of the Order.

 

Candidates must be an active member of the Clan Henderson Society at the time of appointment. Honorary members of the Clan Henderson Society are not eligible for membership in the Order.  Posthumous awards may be made, provided the member was in active status in the Society at the time of death.

 

The total number of members in the Order is limited to a number of ACTIVE members equal to the number of years (commencing in 1988) the Clan Henderson Society has been organized.  Therefore, the number of members will expand in size by no more than one awardee annually.  Editors note:  In 2021 that number cannot exceed Badge #39

 

The President of the Clan Henderson Society will announce the names of awardees at the next Annual General Meeting of the Clan Henderson Society after the approval of the candidate awardee as a member of the MacEanruig Society.

 

Recognition.  Awardees of membership in the MacEanruig Society are authorized to wear an identification badge, round, 2” in diameter, displaying components of the Clan Henderson crest.  The badge will be sequentially numbered for each awardee.  It is worn on the left pocket or a similar area.
