The James Provan Trophy
The James Provan Trophy is awarded annually at the time of the Association AGM to the Branch that has produced the best overall performance for the Association during the course of the previous year. This is measured not only in terms of funds raised but also in terms of campaigning activities and, where applicable, election results.
It is named after James Provan (born 19 December 1936), a farmer, businessman and politician who served four terms as a Member of the European Parliament for the Conservative Party. He specialised in agriculture, and became a critic of the development of the European Union and especially of the European Commission. He served four terms in the European Parliament; the first representing North East Scotland between 1979 and 1989 and a second term representing South East England from 1994 until he retired in 2004.
