GHD Supreme Award Sponsor
SOLGM thanks GHD Ltd for their generous support and continued sponsorship of the SOLGM Local Government Excellence Supreme Award.
"As a service provider to local government around New Zealand, GHD has a unique perspective on the many talented people and leading initiatives designed to achieve excellence, with limited funding and an increasingly complex regulatory operating environment.
For this reason GHD is pleased to continue its support of the SOLGM Local Government Excellence Awards by sponsoring the Supreme Award.
The GHD Supreme Award provides an opportunity for local authorities to showcase their achievements and innovative thinking in adapting to the challenges faced by the sector.
The local government sector has the opportunity to lead best practice in policy development, community relations, organisational capability and regulatory compliance in an environment of intense public scrutiny and where government is expecting more for less.
As demonstrated by last year's Supreme Award winner - Greater Wellington Regional Council - collaboration and strategic partnerships will deliver progress and community well being that can be readily adapted and leveraged by other regions.
We believe that it is important to recognise these kinds of approaches, particularly as the benefits impact significantly on the future and long term success of New Zealand. For this reason we are committed to the work of SOLGM and its members."
Sara Dennis, Management Consulting Group Manager GHD
