2022 Nomination Process

Our awards are a chance to celebrate the best risk management initiatives in Australia and recognise those who have shown excellence in their processes and strategies.

In 2021, we had more than 13 nominations. This year, we’re looking for even more! We want to hear your stories of success; of how you overcame challenges and improved your council’s resilience.

We’re looking for entries that demonstrate superior risk management, and that evidentiate the value our partnership has served towards the achievement of your strategic objectives.

Your stories have the potential to be an inspiration to others — and your programs may be used as models by other city councils. We’re also seeking nominations of individuals who have shown exceptional leadership in the risk management field, or whose work has improved the lives of the people around them.

All members are encouraged to submit entries — both for themselves and for others — through the form available in CivicRisk Mutual’s member portal.
