C’llr Achievement Awards – deadline this Friday

C'llr Achievement Awards - deadline this Friday

We were nicely surprised this morning to find a big stack of entry forms for the C’llr Achievement Awards. These awards are an initiative we care strongly about as they are designed to highlight and celebrate the dedicated effort that councillors put in throughout the year to strengthen local democracy and help improve the lives of citizens. We therefore would like to put out one final reminder that the deadline is Friday 7th Jan.  Entry forms can be found here.

As always, entry to these awards is absolutely free, anyone can nominate any councillor (but you cannot nominate yourself) and there are no limits to the number of entrants from any one council.

Winners will be announced at an event in London next February. The awards are supported by LGiU and CCLA.

This year we have chosen to offer nine categories. They are;

Leader of the year

Young councillor of the year

New councillor of the year

Scrutineer of the year

Online councillor of the year

Community champion of the year

Sustainability champion of the year

CCLA award for outstanding contribution to financial performance

Partnership achievement of the year
