We will be conducting the Civic Leadership Award Program at this July meeting. This banquet gives our communities an opportunity to recognize the outstanding contributions of business and civic leaders in developing stronger cities. Each mayor has been asked to select an outstanding civic leader in his or her community. The civic leader selected by your city and his or her spouse, will be guests of your city for dinner and will be presented with a Certificate of Appreciation.

The Nominee awards form is linked HERE. The nomination form must be completed by June 22, 2018.
