John M. Harcourt Memorial Award



The John M Harcourt Memorial Award, in memory of John Harcourt who passed away in 1971 during his term as President, is the New Zealand Institute of Valuers’ highest award.   

The Guidelines for the John M Harcourt Memorial Award are as follows:

  • This award may be made annually to any person, not necessarily a member of the Institute, whom the Award Committee considers to have given outstanding service to the valuation profession whether during the calendar year or over a longer period. In this respect the widest discretion may be exercised in the determination of “outstanding service” though it should be noted that long service to the Institute, for which other forms of recognition are available will not be a paramount consideration.
  • The John M Harcourt Memorial Award Committee is to comprise the President and Vice Presidents of the New Zealand Institute of Valuers whose decision must be unanimous.
  • Only one award is to be made each year
  • The Award need not to be made in any year in which the Award Committee considers that no nominee has reached the desired standard.
  • Branches may forward their recommendation supported by an appropriate citation to the Chief Executive Officer before 16 May each year.
  • The Award Committee shall consult with the NZIV Council before deciding on any award.
  • The Award takes the form of a suitably engraved silver plate or box with an accompanying Award Certificate
  • The Award Committee may make the award to any person – not necessarily one of those nominated by branches.

Iain Gribble Memorial Award

This award may be made annually to any person being a member of the New Zealand Institute of Valuers, whom the Award Committee considers to have given significantly in the area of mentoring and support to the valuer community, who embraces the comradery of the profession and who is an advocate for valuer concerns and issues. 

The ideal candidate is someone who embodied the characteristics of Iain.

Iain was always available to lend an ear and provide assistance to valuers navigating their way through challenging jobs and circumstances. He always had time to help a fellow Valuer out. He acted as a mentor and sounding board and was an advocate for valuers and valuers concerns. He served his professional well and was involved in a number of PINZ and NZIV committees. In addition, he was a long serving member of the LPMS board. He always had the best interests of the profession at heart and was an excellent example of a Registered Valuer who not only got involved and who was passionate about maintaining the integrity of that which exemplifies a Registered Valuer but also genuinely cared about his fellow valuers.
