14 Nov NGA Awards for Outstanding Governance
Has your governing body or clerk:
- Stepped up to challenges?
- Been instrumental in driving forward new projects and initiatives?
- Dealt with crises?
- Contributed to the wider community?
- Driven school improvement?
- Improved children’s education?
Then you may wish to consider a nomination for the NGA Awards for Outstanding Governance. There are two awards, one for governing bodies (open in England) and one for clerks (open in England and Wales), and you don’t have to be a member to either nominate or be nominated.
Outstanding Governing Body: Open to all governing bodies in England, including non-members.
Outstanding Clerk: Open to all clerks in England and Wales, including non-members.
You may have read the NGA Outstanding Governing Body features in their magazine Governing Matters over the past year. These have showcased the finalists from 2011 awards, and give good examples of what the NGA is looking for. You can also read the case studies on the public area of the NGA website.
Please nominate your governing body or clerk for the 2012 awards so that their hard work can be recognised and celebrated. The awards also help the NGA to gather good practice and enable them to promote it across the country.
The awards ceremony will be on 30 April 2013 and they will presented by Lord Hill in the House of Commons. The deadline for nominations is 17 December, nomination forms are available from the NGA website. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
