2022 BCSLA AWARDS - Descriptions and Nomination Information

Community Service

The BCSLA Community Service Awards offer BCSLA Members and Associates with a unique opportunity to recognize and honour our “best citizens”. Put your thinking caps on and give us your best advice.  

> Volunteer Public Service 

The BCSLA Board of Directors would like to recognize members who have selflessly dedicated their time and expertise to make the world (at any scale) a better place to be, for the public or common good. This volunteer service must occur outside of working hours and outside of service to the BCSLA.

> Exceptional Contribution - Public Practice

The Board of Directors is looking for examples of Members working in public practice who are making a lasting contribution to the profession and its relationship with local government and the public.

NB: In 2020, due to COVID-19 the Board of Directors terms were extended until the 2021 AGM. The BCSLA Awards Presentation was not held in 2020 and 2021.  As such, Jacqueline Lowe, Past, Past President, is tasked with nominating President's Award candidates for 2020 and 2021. In keeping with tradition, Erik Mustonen, Past President will nominate the 2022 candidate.
