AMINZ awarded Bankside members Kate Wiseman, Kelly Quinn and Mark Kelly at the annual AMINZ conference.
Kate Wiseman and Kelly Quinn received the Arbitration Fellowship, the Institute’s highest credentialled status. With a rigorous assessment process of both academic knowledge and practical skills, the AMINZ Fellowship is the only arbitration credential worldwide that grants automatic reciprocal Fellowship rights with the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) in the United Kingdom.
Kelly Quinn was also awarded the Sir Ronald Davison prize for excellence in fellowship arbitration.
The AMINZ's Fellowship Programme evaluates candidates at an advanced level, testing their proficiency as mediators or arbitrators. Annually, the programme alternates its focus between Arbitration and Mediation. Bankside member Royden Hindle oversaw this year's programme as Director of professional studies, along with Paul Sills as Deputy Director of Professional Studies for Arbitration and Mediation.
Former AMINZ president Mark Kelly won Te Tohu Ngākau Nui: The Big Heart Award, for his commitment to recognising selfless service and valuable contributions as a mentor: "Mark Kelly embodies the essence of the Big Heart Award, honouring those dedicated to our Institute's betterment. Actively involved in the diversity committee, Mark mentors future professionals, imparting knowledge and empathy. His consistent willingness to help and his kindness make him a community pillar and a shining example of service with a big heart."
Bankside congratulates these members for their outstanding achievements.
