When establishing an Award Holder Authority (AHA) within an area, the National Award Authority (NAA) should aim to support, encourage and develop the AHA members. 

Any AHA should be recognised by, and come under the authority of the NAA.  This should be a mutually beneficial partnership, such that the AHA benefits from the established support and resources of the NAA and the NAA benefits from enthusiastic young supporters provided by the AHA.
