WIMG Leadership Award Deadline Extended to October 26, 2005


Leo, Lita, Nation's Cities Weekly


NLC's Women in Municipal Government (WIMG) constituency group has extended the deadline for nominations for its first-ever WIMG Leadership Award. Nominations are due October 26, 2005.

The award will recognize female municipal officials for their unique and outstanding leadership in local government. Each year, the winner will be recognized for implementing a program in local government that helps to improve a city or a town's quality of life for its citizens, particularly if her leadership serves as a specific mentoring model for future women leaders.

The WIMG Leadership Award promotes the increased representation of women in local government and is designed to encourage more women to run for elected office.

A panel of guest judges representing the NLC membership, the private industry and civic leadership will choose the winner of the award.

The WIMG Leadership Award is being cosponsored by General Motors and ICMA Retirement Corporation.

The WIMG Leadership Award is open to all NLC female elected officials. The nominee does not need to be a member of the Women in Municipal Government constituency group.

Current members of the WIMG Board of Directors and WIMG Advisory Council are not eligible to be nominated for the award.

Finalists for the award will be announced in advance of the NLC Congress of Cities in Charlotte, N.C., December 6-10, 2005. The winner will be announced and honored along with the other finalists during the annual WIMG Luncheon and Membership Meeting on Friday, December 9. All award finalists must plan to be present for the award presentation.
