Celebrate the Value of Professional Management

ICMA’s Annual Awards Program honors creative contributions to professional local government management and increases public awareness of the value of professional management to the quality of life in our communities. The Annual Awards Program includes the Professional Awards, which recognize individual achievement, and the Program Excellence Awards, which are presented to local governments and their chief administrators in recognition of creative and successful programs.

An independent Awards Evaluation Panel composed of 17 U.S. and international ICMA members selects the awards recipients each year. Nominations for 2012 are being accepted through March 16. Full information on all awards categories, as well as the nominations process, can be found on the awards page of the ICMA website.

Nominations should be submitted by e-mail to awards@icma.org. Faxed and hard-copy submissions are not necessary.

Award recipients will be notified in June and recognized during ICMA’s 98th annual conference this October in Phoenix, Arizona. Recipients will also be featured in a fall issue of PM magazine.

Members with questions can contact Felicia Littky, awards program coordinator, at awards@icma.org or 202/962-3656.
