Structure and appointment
There are 2 classes to this ribbon, one awarded to former delegates and one for any citizen in a Cupertino member state. The delegation class is intended to honour any retired delegate to the Cupertino Alliance who has demonstrated a high level of passion and dedication to the Alliance, whilst the citizen class is to honour dedicated, passionate, and hard-working citizens of member states.
In order to qualify for the ribbon, one must be a delegate of the Cupertino Alliance after 1 January 2020 and retired from their delegate duties. A current delegate can nominate a retired delegate in the Parliament of the Cupertino Alliance, where it gets voted upon by the other members. If it reaches a majority, the retired delegate will be awarded the ribbon by the Chair of the Board. Former delegates are entitled to use the post-nominal letters CUP, whilst citizens are entitled to use the post-nominal letters CCR.
