Nominate an Outstanding Supervisor, Secretary, or Manager for a PSATS Leadership Award

Tuesday December 12th, 2017
Do you know a township supervisor, secretary, or manager who lives and breathes community service? Who brings the highest standards of dedication, creativity, and leadership to his or her role in local government?
With your help, that person could be honored with PSATS’ 29th Annual President’s Leadership Award.
Township supervisors, secretaries, and managers who held office or were employed in 2017 may be nominated by any official of the same township or by an officer of their county association of township officials. They may be nominated for recent or lifetime achievements that have significantly improved their township. 
Examples include cost-cutting, coordination of a major local effort, the advancement of township goals in the state or federal legislature, the establishment of new local services or programs, and the successful implementation of local development projects.  
Any supervisor, secretary, or manager who was nominated previously but did not win may be nominated again. PSATS Executive Board members and board-appointed trustees are not eligible.
Entries will be judged on the complexity of the problem(s) addressed; measurable improvements resulting from the accomplishment; use of original, innovative, or creative approaches and solutions; and long-term benefits of the accomplishments. 
The deadline for submitting entries is January 31, 2018
Two winners will be selected: a township supervisor and a township secretary or manager. Each winner will receive an engraved plaque at PSATS’ Annual Educational Conference April 22-25, 2018, in Her­shey and coverage in the Pennsylvania Township News. PSATS will also notify their local newspapers. 
A brochure with a nomination form was sent to all townships in November and is available here. For more information, call Brenda Wilt at PSATS at (717) 763-0930, ext. 123.
