NHSA Policy Document

 NHSA POLICY ON MAINTAINING OF DEDICATED STATUS

POLICY EFFECTIVE FROM 1 MARCH 2016 (and continuously updated)

From 2017 the Annual Reporting Date is 30 November, which date replaces all reference to 31 December in all NHSA Policy documents relating to dedicated status.

Note that for 2017, dedicated activities participated in between 1 January 2017 and 30 November 2017 are taken into account.

From the age of 75 years, members do not need to submit annual activity reports anymore

SHORT SUMMARY:  How to Maintain Dedicated Status with NHSA

Dedicated members enter their activities on the Activities Page of their Personal Natshoot Profile Page.  This process replaces the pre-2014 annual reports which were completed on paper and posted or Emailed to the office. 

It is thus no longer necessary to submit an additional paper based "Annual Report" as everything that needs to be done for maintenance of dedicated status is now done on the Activities Page of your Natshoot Profile Page (see HERE how to enter your Personal Natshoot Profile Page).

On the Activities page of your Personal Natshoot Profile Page, the system will immediately show when a dedicated member complies with the requirements for maintaining dedicated status for a specific reporting year, by colouring all blocks on the top of the table, GREEN, with the statement that the member is compliant till 30 November of the year following the reporting year. 

The system will also show what the dedicated member must still do to become compliant for a specific reporting year (just read what is written in the top columns of the table on the Activities page of your Personal Natshoot Profile Page).
