Victorian Councillor Service Awards
We recognise the contribution of all councillors and continue the tradition of conferring awards for long serving councillors.
The Victorian Councillor Service Awards comprise two awards:
- Long service is recognised at 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 years' service.
- The award of Mayor Emeritus recognises councillors who have served three or more full terms as mayor. A full term is considered 12 months. In a local government election year, a full term may be considered less than 12 months.
The last awards were conferred at the MAV Annual Dinner following the Annual Conference on Thursday 17 October 2019 at the Sofitel Hotel, Melbourne.
Submissions are currently open for the 2020 Councillor Service Awards and are due by Wednesday 9 September.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and current restrictions in place in Victoria, the 2020 MAV Annual Conference and Dinner will not be going ahead this year. As a result, the contribution of councillors will be recognised in an alternative format with details provided to councils and councillors very soon.
