Reach for the stars - apply to the 2019 NALC Star Council Awards!

Sponsored by BHIB Councils Insurance

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) officially launched its prestigious Star Council Awards for 2019 on 15 March.  The awards recognise the achievements of the parish and town (local) council sector and celebrate the positive impact local councils, county associations, local councillors and clerks make to their communities.

NALC has already started to receive applications and is calling on local councils who have gone above and beyond to serve their community to apply. The awards are looking for individuals and organisations that are making a real, positive difference locally.

NALC is encouraging community champions who have gone above and beyond to make a positive local change to put themselves forward.

This year the categories include young councillor (aged 18-30), councillor, clerk, council of the year and county association project of the year.

NALC chairman, Cllr Sue Baxter said

This is the fifth consecutive year NALC has run the awards and we are expecting it to be our biggest and best yet. Local councils work on a daily basis to deliver vital services to their residents and the NALC Star Council Awards are a chance to celebrate all they do for their communities.

I encourage every council, county association, councillor and clerk who thinks they have done something special for their community to put themselves forward. Have you got what it takes to be a winner?

The deadline for applications is Friday 28 June 2019, with the awards ceremony taking place at the NALC Annual Conference on 28 October 2019 in Milton Keynes.
