BAHNO wishes to encourage all members to consider whether they would like to apply.


BAHNO’s role in NCIAs

Following changes to the ACCIA application process, BAHNO (as a Member Organisation (MO)) will no longer provide citations and rankings to a selected number of applicants.

This means that applicants will no longer be able to choose to request support from MOs such as BAHNO (previously known as National Nominating Organisations (NNOs)).

BAHNO will however still play an important role in supporting members across our specialty groups and areas of practice to apply for awards.
