Celebrate the profession by nominating a colleague or your community for a 2017 Local Government Excellence Award
Each year, ICMA recognizes outstanding contributions to the local government management profession through the Local Government Excellence Awards Program. This is an opportunity for both local government professionals and local governments to receive recognition.
Awards are presented to individuals for:
- Career excellence
- Development of new talent,
- Excellence in leadership as an assistant (regardless of title),
- Early career leadership, and
- Academic contributions to the profession.
ICMA’s Local Government Excellence Awards Program also recognizes outstanding local government programs in the areas of community health and safety, community partnerships, community sustainability, and strategic leadership and governance. Nominations are accepted from both U.S. and International Jurisdictions. Students are encouraged to nominate a professor for the Academic Award.
