Bland Shire Council staff member excels amongst her peers across NSW

Earlier this year advice was received from LGNSW that they were initiating an award category for council executive and personal assistants with the objective of recognising the excellent work undertaken by these members of staff in providing significant support to General Managers and Mayors.

There were no specific criteria other than a request to General Managers to consider nominating their executive assistants for the award.

Consequently, based on the continual high standard of work produced by my own Executive Assistant, Julie Sharpe, I had no hesitation in submitting her nomination, said the Council’s General Manager, Ray Smith and I am now very proud and excited to announce that Julie has been chosen, from amongst her peers, as the inaugural winner of the LGNSW Executive Assistant of the Year!

Mrs. Sharpe was amongst a number of nominees from major metropolitan councils to regional and rural councils from across the state.

Mrs. Sharpe said that while the award was totally unexpected it was nice to be recognised for her work for the council.
