Town of Osoyoos Joins Communities Across the Province in Planting a Tree Commemorating the Work of Local Government Professionals

Immediate Release
June 25, 2019
Local Government professionals contribute to the well-being of their communities in a variety of ways, and May 19-25, 2019 marked Local Government Awareness Week.  This year, local governments in BC are planting a tree in recognition of local government professionals and their ongoing commitment to community service while also celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Local Government Management Association of BC (LGMA).
“Our local government staff do so much great work behind the scenes, and we are happy to have the opportunity to recognize their contributions to our community,” said Mayor Sue McKortoff.
At the 1919 Union of BC Municipalities Conference, a resolution was adopted establishing the Local Government Management Association of BC (then called the “Municipal Officers Association of BC”). For the past 100 years, the LGMA has worked to support the learning, leadership, and growth of local government professionals across the province.
LGMA is dedicated to supporting excellence in local government by providing high-quality practical training and resources. Every year the LGMA trains upwards of 1,500 local government professionals and has a membership of nearly 900 members.
To mark its 100th anniversary, the LGMA is working in partnership with BC Hydro’s Community Regreening Program to provide all local governments in BC with a tree they can plant to recognize the dedication, hard work, and innovation by local government professionals during Local Government Awareness Week.
Media and the public are invited to join staff at the tree planting ceremony on Wednesday, June 26 @ 9:00am at Town Hall (8707 Main Street). Tree planted is an Autumn Blaze Maple.
