Metro Branch Event - Awards and Best Practice Showcase

Why you've got to be in it to win it!

The LG Professionals WA Honour Awards aim to acknowledge, award and celebrate passionate Local Government Officers and teams who demonstrate an outstanding contribution to the Local Government sector.

At this Metro Branch session you will hear from some of the 2020 award winners as they tell us why they applied, how they found the nomination process and what winning means for them, while also sharing details of the best practice initiatives that make them award winners. We hope that the session will inspire you and encourage nominations for the 2021 awards to be held at the Annual State Conference at Crown Perth in early November.
