Members who have rendered outstanding honorary service to the RSA for at least 10 years, for the benefit of ex-service personnel and the community in general. The member’s local RSA must have already recognised their service by awarding Local Life Membership and/or Local Certificate of Merit.
Gold Star Badge with Certificate
Members of the RSA who have rendered outstanding honorary service to RNZRSA at National and/or District level for a period of five years, subsequent to the award of a Merit badge. If the qualifying conditions are met and service totals 20 years or more, the Gold Star Badge and Certificate of Merit be awarded. In such circumstances, the requirements of waiting five years after the award of the Merit badge are set aside.
Gold Star Badge and Bar with Certificate

Such service must include service on a subcommittee or committee at a National or District level for the benefit of ex-service personnel, complemented by community activities which evidence a genuine regard for the welfare of their fellow men and women.

DISTRICT LONG SERVICE AWARD
The District Long Service Award takes the form of a certificate and bar to mark the appropriate number of years. Nominees:
Must have a total of at least 20 years’ service within the district
Are eligible for nomination at 20, 30 and 40 years of service within the district. When a member has reached the 50 year service mark, a National Certificate of Appreciation will be awarded.
LOCAL RSA CERTIFICATES OF APPRECIATION
We have certificates available for RSAs who would like to recognise the people and organisations that have helped their RSA. These don’t require any approval process because it’s a certificate from your RSA to the recipient, not from the RNZRSA or your District.
Certificates of appreciation cost $6 GST inclusive and you can order them by emailing email@example.com.
For more information about awards, see Chapter 5 of the RNZRSA Manual or contact National Office.
