Team ILG Wants to Recognize Hard Working Public Servants!

Submission Form: Nominate a Local Government Champion Today

The ILG team is collecting nominations for outstanding leaders in public service. Nominations can include anyone working in one of California’s cities, counties or special districts – from staff to elected or appointed officials. Self nominations are also accepted and encouraged!

Help us celebrate public servants performing good work in the areas of:

  • Leadership & Governance
  • Public Engagement
  • Sustainable & Resilient Communities
  • Workforce & Civics Education.

Throughout the year, we will be highlighting these Champions of Local Government in California.

Those submitting nominations will be entered to win a free registration to an upcoming ILG training (valued at up to $1,000).
