The LGMA Awards for Excellence recognise the best of local government initiatives in the state, noting the differing environments and communities that local government serves. LGMA is delighted to present a programme which acknowledges and celebrates the outstanding work undertaken by local governments across Queensland. 

The categories are designed to be flexible – recognising that local government is at the forefront of innovation and operates in a rapidly changing environment. Categories are not intended to be limited to particular areas of local government activity. Instead, they are applicable to activities across the whole of local government.

The Award Categories include:

Above and Beyond, Community Shaping, Collaboration, Innovation, Sustainability, Teamwork and Workplace Wellbeing. View the Awards Brochure Here
