Great participation, engagement and networking took place at the LGANT Annual Conference with over 30 Local Government Administrators from across the NWT in attendance during our meeting in September
LGANT thanks its partners, epecially the Department of Municipal and Community Affairs and the Department of Human Resources at the GNWT, and the NWT Association of Communities for their ongoing contributions and support.
LGANT also thanks all our sponsors who contributed financial and in-kind resources to make this event possible.
LGANT's President, Grant Hood who was reelected for a second two-year term thanks outgoing board members Evelyn Storr, Ruby Jumbo , and Terry Testart for their many years of serving on the LGANT board, their dedication and commitment to LGANT and for promoting professionalism in the field of local government administration. The President, new Board of Directors and staff wish them continued professional success and good health.
A special congratulations to Greg Morash, Municipal Supervisor in Paulatuk,the winner of the 2013 LGANT Award of Excellence!
The Award is given to a Local Government Administrator in the Northwest Territories who has displayed outstanding commitment, dedication and public service, and is held in high regard by his / her profession and community.
Greg Morash was recently appointed to the position as Municipal Supervisor in Paulatuk! His nomination will come to no surprise to anybody who knows and has worked with Greg with his great reputation as a hard worker combined with a wealth of knowledge that he is always willing to share. He is a hard-working individual who has mentored many colleagues and supported the SAO Trainee program, also called ALGAP. He knows about capacity building and understands the importance of staff training. His contributions to community governments in the NWT are highlighted by his ability to administer a community out of deficit and provide solid administration and leadership during a community emergency. He most recently administered a successful recovery plan in the Community Government of Gametì.
Above all, Greg is a community oriented individual and he is highly regarded by his peers as well as his community government and community as evidenced by his nomination for the Award. For that, Greg was the perfect candidate to receive the Award.
Greg will be receiving a $1,000 Professional Development Honorarium and a trip to next year’s NWTAC Annual General Meeting where he will be recognized in front of many elected municipal officials including the previous and current councils he worked with. Congratulations Greg!
During the Annual General Meeting, LGANT members elected a new Board of Directors.
