Know someone in local government who deserves an award?

The ALDE Group in the Committee of the Regions has launched the third edition of the awards for key liberal players at regional and local level. This year’s awards ceremony will be held on 4th of December in Brussels.

Both the national board of ALDE and EDP member parties as well as their local branches can submit nominations of persons that are considered to be suitable candidates for such an award, accompanied by a small motivation. Nominations need to reach the ALDE Secretariat by 30th September 2013.

There will be 2 categories of awards:

  • Local Leader of the Year
  • Regional Leader of the Year

Each of these would have 4 different awards (i.e. total of 8 awards):

  • Achievement in Government
  • Achievement in Opposition
  • Most effective party engagement with citizens
  • Most effective EU ambassador

A jury composed of the key liberal and democrat leaders in Europe will select the winners.

Local, regional and national boards of ALDE and EDP parties can all submit nominations for the ALDE Local and Regional Leader Awards. For submitting nominations or for more information about these awards, please contact Tuuli Reissaar at aldeleaders[at]cor[dot]europa[dot]eu or 0032 2 282 2582. Alternatively, the nomination form can be downloaded here.

    Personal Awards are worse than a waste of time. For every winner there are a hundred losers who were probably working just as well, some under more difficult circumstances. For every individual award there is a team who made it possible (as they always acknowledge), so why give individual awards? Instead turn the event into a learning experience where LibDem best practice is shared and where the whole can then become greater than the sum of the parts.

    Mohammed Bashir of Woking. Should get an award for innovative techniques in election campaigning.
