Municipal Government Hall of Fame Nominations Being Accepted

February 19, 2014

Nominations are now being accepted for GMA’s Municipal Government Hall of Fame. If you know of someone who meets the criteria outlined below, I hope you will consider submitting a nomination. Inductees will be honored on Monday afternoon, June 23 at the Annual Convention in Savannah.

The Municipal Government Hall of Fame was established in 1992 to recognize current and past municipal officials who exemplify the very best in public service and who, throughout their careers, have made extraordinary contributions to their cities. To be considered, nominees must have:
  • served a minimum of fifteen years as either an elected or appointed municipal official (an exception is made for city officials who were only able to serve two four-year terms due to term limits;
  • made significant contributions to the quality of life within their city; and
  • been a strong supporter of the Georgia Municipal Association.
A maximum of three individuals are inducted in a given year, not counting the outgoing GMA president who is automatically inducted. No more than two individuals may be inducted posthumously in a given year.

Nominations must be received by April 21. To submit a nomination, please use the nomination form or a facsimile. Up to five additional pages may be submitted. Letters of support may also be supported and are not included in the page limit for the actual nomination.

If you have any questions, please contact Bill Thornton at (678) 686-6230 or
