NALC is delighted to invite entries to the Star Council Awards, which we are running for the fourth successive year in 2018.
The awards are a fantastic opportunity for local councils, councillors, clerks and county associations to showcase how they have made a positive difference locally. They are the only awards in England to recognise the contribution local councils make to their communities.
This year, the theme of the awards will be how local councils have engaged with their communities and made a positive impact on them. We are encouraging anyone who has made a difference to people living in their area to put themselves forward.
Over the years, the awards have received hundreds of nominations from every corner of England. This year, NALC would like to build on that success and see even more nominations submitted by councils, county associations, community members and MPs.
We will celebrate the local council sector’s achievements through five categories.
To give you more of a say on who wins awards, this year, the Council of the Year category will be decided by a public vote.
Being a Star Council Awards winner not only gives local councils national recognition for the services they have provided to their community but also allows them to share their expertise with their peers. Winners will be announced at awards dinner at the Annual Conference, taking place on 30 October 2018 at DoubleTree by Hilton in Milton Keynes.
Entrants have until 17 August to submit their entries.
