I encourage you to consider nominating a public servant, or a public service team, for the Lieutenant Governor’s Award of the Saskatchewan Regional Group of the Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC).
This prestigious medal recognizes a person or work team that has demonstrated distinctive leadership and exceptional achievement in public administration in Saskatchewan. The Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan will present this award on September 21, 2017 during a ceremony at Government House hosted by the Saskatchewan Regional Group of IPAC.
Previous recipients of this award include meritorious public servants from all levels of government and a variety of fields of interest and public sector specialization across Saskatchewan.
Annually we also accept nominations for an award to honour promising new public sector professionals in Saskatchewan. I invite you to nominate an outstanding new professional for the Saskatchewan Regional Group of IPAC’s Promising New Professional award.
This Promising New Professional award recognizes an individual or team of individuals with less than five years of cumulative experience in public service who demonstrates:
- leadership potential within the public service;
- the ideals and values of public administration; and
- the ability and potential to contribute to excellence in public service in Saskatchewan.
Nomination packages for both awards are available at http://www.ipac.ca/Saskatchewan/Awards. The deadline for nominations is June 30, 2017. Please direct any questions regarding the awards to Alison Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org
President, IPAC – Saskatchewan Regional Group
