In non-election years, VLCT members may nominate legislators for a Legislative Service Award.
The MUNICIPAL SERVICE AWARD is given to an elected or appointed municipal official who has shown an active commitment to strong local government beyond the borders of his or her community – such as in service to the Vermont League of Cities and Towns – and has also demonstrated a commitment to his or her municipality by serving on a board or commission.
From time to time, VLCT presents its LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD to a municipal official or employee who has dedicated his or her career to serving local government both within his or her community and through service at a statewide level on a board, a commission, or to the Vermont League of Cities and Towns.
The LEGISLATIVE SERVICE AWARD recognizes a member of the Vermont General Assembly who, through his or her service, has best shown an awareness of the issues facing local government and its capacity for self-governance, and who has sought to provide local authority on a statewide basis through legislative action.
