Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) Community Leadership Award

The Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) Community Leadership Award honours individuals and groups who donate their time to advance community-driven, innovative and sustainable solutions to their municipality's most pressing challenges. Effective community leaders are dedicated to advancing and uplifting the voices of their community, and they are able to achieve unlikely things in the presence of great challenges and obstacles. The AMM Community Leadership Award celebrates the invaluable contributions and dedication of volunteers in communities across Manitoba.

The Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) represents all 137 incorporated municipalities in Manitoba and lobbies for issues that affect its members. Many of these issues are raised by its members through resolutions or correspondence, which are then brought to the attention of the Manitoba or Federal government. Other issues are initiated by senior levels of government when they draft legislation or regulations that affect municipalities. The AMM monitors and responds to any legislation affecting municipal government.

Eligibility Criteria

The AMM Community Leadership Award recognizes an individual who has carried out any of the following volunteer work:

  • Responding to community issues by creating a program or new initiative.
  • Advancement of social issues that affect the well-being of community members, families and the community-at-large.
  • Celebrates diversity in their community.
  • Provides, and/or inspires, leadership in others.
  • Mobilizes community members to achieve a common goal or to volunteer their time.
