For 2011 :

    • Bronze is 700 plus complete a specified number of requirements
    • Silver is 1000 plus Bronze
    • Gold is 1600 plus Silver and Bronze
  • Journey to Excellence assessment is made at the time of Unit rechartering
  • Units with a satisfactory performance receive the “Bronze” level of recognition
  • Units which do better than satisfactory receive higher recognition
    • “Silver” level - Excellent Performance
    • “Gold” level - Outstanding Performance
  • Recognition items will include a ribbon, plaque patches for the uniform, clip art for Unit web page
