Every year SOLGM recognises members who have been working in local government for many years. They epitomise commitment and dedication to the craft of local government and they bring with them a wealth of knowledge and expertise that can not easily be quantified. The awarding takes place at the SOLGM Annual Summit. Nominations for Long Service Certificate Awards are called for mid-July each year.
