The West Australian Local Government Association recently hosted the 2017 WA Local Government Convention in Perth. An important part of the Convention is the public recognition and celebration of the outstanding achievements and lasting contributions made by elected members and officers to their respective Councils, the Local Government sector and the wider community through the Association Honours Program.
The Shire of Kulin submitted two nominations for the 2017 Association Honours and were delighted when Freeman Jim Sullivan and Freeman Greg Hadlow received awards in their nominated categories.
Jim Sullivan received the Long and Loyal Service Award which recognises a high degree of long and loyal service to a Local Government or the WA Local Government Association, for his 27 years of service with the Shire of Kulin and as a long serving member of WALGA’s Central Country Zone.
Greg Hadlow was the recipient of the Local Government Distinguished Officers Award for outstanding contributions by a serving officer of a Local Government, the sector and local communities. Greg was recognised for his dedication to rural communities and inspiring people around him to always improve and push the boundaries.
At the 2017 Local Government Supervisors Association Conference held in Bunbury at the start of August, a surprise presentation was made to Len Hobson from the Shire of Kulin. The Shire took the opportunity to make a special presentation to Len, surrounded by his peers, in recognition of his 36 years of employment with the Shire of Kulin. Len was a guest of the LGSA to the conference and dinner and also received a farewell gift from the association members.
Congratulations again to Jim, Greg and Len – the Kulin community is proud of your achievements and grateful for your tireless contributions.
