Now in their eighth year, LGiU’s C’llr Achievement Awards are back for 2017! The only awards celebrating the important work of councillors and is the highlight of the year for elected members across England and Wales.
About the Awards
We will welcome 200 of the brightest and best councillors, as well as council leaders, other senior local government figures and MPs, for an evening of celebration and networking against the beautiful background of the Guildhall in London. We pride ourselves on hosting a light-hearted and relaxed event, which guests in previous years have told us they appreciate more than black-tie or formal dinners – so the ceremony is a standing reception, with food and drink served all evening.
We promote nominations from May through to September, gathering around 200 entries from councillor colleagues, local MPs and residents. The shortlist is announced in October and the judging panel convenes before the ceremony in November. The winners are announced on the night by LGiU Chief Executive Jonathan Carr-West.
This is an invitation-only event and tickets will be free of charge to guests. We will begin inviting people in early Autumn.
