Each year the LMA recognizes Service Award recipients.  These service awards honor elected municipal officials who have served sufficiently well to earn continual and repeated re-election to positions of authority in their respective municipalities. Indeed, election to a position of municipal authority is a great honor and privilege. But re-election is an extremely high honor reflecting the trust and confidence each long-term municipal official has earned through many years of dedicated public service. These Service Awards pay fitting tribute to such unparalleled achievement.

To be eligible to receive this award, you must be an elected official who has served for four, six, eight, etc. TERMS in office.  Members who have served for four terms will receive a four-star silver service award; six terms will receive a six-star gold service award; and eight terms will receive an eight-star diamond service award. 

All services award applications are to be submitted, in writing, to Penny Ambeau-Scott, Membership Service Coordinator by the July 1 deadline.
