2018 Community Excellence Awards

The deadline for the 2018 Community Excellence Awards is fast-approaching. Interested UBCM members should submit their applications by Friday, May 25, 2018.

The Community Excellence Awards have been revised to recognize and celebrate UBCM members that have undertaken projects that demonstrate excellence in meeting the purposes of local government in BC. 

The 2018 categories are:

  • Excellence in Governance.  Projects/programs that include processes or policies that are outcomes-based, support and encourage citizen participation in civic decision-making, and that exemplify best practices in accountability, long-term thinking and transparency.
  • Excellence in Service Delivery.  Projects/programs that provide effective services in a proactive manner, demonstrate benefit to the community, and utilize performance measures, benchmarks and standards to ensure sustainable service delivery.
  • Excellence in Asset Management.  Projects/programs that demonstrate a comprehensive system of asset management policies and practices.
  • Excellence in Sustainability.  Projects/programs that incorporate a long-term sustainability lens by considering cultural, social, economic and environmental issues in planning, policy and practice.

The presentation of the awards will also be revised for 2018.  All delegates at UBCM’s 2018 Convention will be invited to the awards reception.  Information on the time and location of the reception will be available in the 2018 Convention program.
