The OCMA Annual Awards for 2013 honor local government programs and leaders that demonstrate the best in leadership and practice. The program also seeks to increase public awareness of the value of professional local government management, recognizing the outstanding work performed by elected officials, appointed managers, local government staff, and citizens who work together to address the most pressing issues facing today’s communities.
