The LG Professionals Australia National Federation Awards is an annual celebration of outstanding achievements in local government for individuals and councils.
The Awards honour local governments for their efforts in making a difference in their communities, by showcasing innovative solutions that demonstrate leading practices, deliver quality services and better outcomes for communities, and have the potential to be replicated across the country.
Here in Tasmania, the Awards Program has been designed to support the national awards with the state winners being entered into the national competition.
There are five categories of which the Emerging Leader Award is the only category that is an individual award category.
Tasmanian winners will be recognised in front of industry peers at our state conference at Orford in October 2020.
The National Awards will be presented at the 2020 Awards Dinner in Canberra in November 2020 where the winners will receive a trophy for their council and individual certificates for all team members.
All national category winners will be celebrated in the wider local government sector after the ceremony in an awards publication circulated industry-wide.
Winners will have the opportunity to self-promote through a publicity program with LG Professionals Australia which may include presenting at associated events.
