The Years of Membership Award is our way of thanking members for your continued support of LGAA. Starting in 2023, we have changed the eligibility and type of gift that recipients receive so that you have more choice over how your tenure with LGAA is recognized.
The Years of Membership Award is granted to individuals that have been a member of LGAA for ten (10) years and every five (5) year increment thereafter. Recipients will receive a gift card towards their choice of a variety of cultural, arts, sporting, or travel activities, or a contribution towards their future professional development costs. Recipients of the Years of Membership Award are announced at our annual general meeting. The years of membership may be non-consecutive and is tracked by LGAA so nomination is not required.
This new award is granted to the LGAA Zone Director that has the highest percentage of members in a zone who attend the fall zone meeting in the previous year. Make sure you attend your fall zone meeting to increase your zone's chance of winning this award and the bragging rights! The date of your fall zone meeting will be listed in the event calendar.
