Councillor Achievement Award 2013 – Do you know someone?
I have decided to post these details not as a shameless plug, but to highlight this award as most people will have no idea these awards actually exist. These awards not only cover those Councillors who are elected to District and County positions, but the often unsung heroes of local government, Town and Parish Councillors.
So know of anyone that should be nominated look at the categories and if you can spare five minutes and feel someone is worthy, please submit an application. You have until January 18th.
“The C’llr Achievement Awards are the only national ceremony which celebrates the contributions of councillors from across the political spectrum. Now in their fourth year, the Awards promise to be even bigger and better than before. The Rt Hon Eric Pickles MP, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, has been confirmed as the keynote speaker at the 2013 Awards Ceremony.
So if you know an outstanding councillor who has made a positive impact to their community, we want to hear from you! This year the following 11 awards will be up for grabs at the 2013 ceremony:
- Bruce-Lockhart Member Scholarship
- Age UK Award
- CCLA Award for Outstanding Contribution to Financial Performance

- Judges’ Special Award for Contribution to Local Government
- Leader of the Year
- Online Councillor of the Year
- Partnership Achievement of the Year
- Scrutineer of the Year
- Sustainability Champion of the Year
- Young Councillor of the Year
Of particular interest is the Bruce-Lockhart Member Scholarship supported by Kent, Essex, and East Sussex councils. The winner of this Award will be presented with a £10,000 bursary to fund a project that will help advance local government within the UK”.
