LGA Award Submission Form 2020

QPLA acknowledges that 2020 was a challenging year for all Queensland Local Governments, and we aim to recognise the Queensland Local Government that most demonstrates outstanding community service through delivery of an individual program or service during these very trying times.

Queensland Local Governments are invited to nominate a project from the previous 12 months which aligns with the 2020 QPLA LEaD Professional Development event Chaos vs Complexity.

Entries must be signed off by the Library Manager and sent to the Secretary, QPLA via secretary@qpla.asn.au by COB Friday 15 January 2021.
