Victorian Councillor Service Awards

We recognise the contribution of all councillors and continue the tradition of conferring awards for long serving councillors. Nominations for the 2022 Councillor Service Awards closed on 16 September 2022.

The Victorian Councillor Service Awards comprise two awards:

  • Long service is recognised at 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 years' service.
  • The award of Mayor Emeritus recognises councillors who have served three or more full terms as mayor. A full term is considered 12 months. In a local government election year, a full term may be considered less than 12 months.

These awards will be presented at the 2022 MAV Annual Conference Dinner on Thursday, 13 October 2022 at the Metropolis, Melbourne.
