The Jim Sinclair Exceptional Service Award was created in memory of Rogers City Councilmember Jim Sinclair. Jim was a tireless worker and promoter of local government and a fervent believer in education and training for elected officials. This award was created to honor Jim’s legacy of personal dedication, passion, and commitment to the League and its mission.
Nominees must be:
– Affiliated with the League in the capacity of a municipal official, municipal staff, a League staff member, or an active participant in the League’s mission;
– Active in furthering the cause of educating elected officials so that communities may benefit from the education and experience that their elected officials have gained.
An awards committee consisting of the League president, vice president, executive director, and the Elected Officials Academy president and vice president will serve as the judges. After a recipient is selected, an award will be given out at the League’s Awards Banquet in the spring.
