Meritorious Service Award Nomination

The SUMA Board of Directors established a long service award program in 1968 to recognize municipal employees who have served for 20 or more years of employment with a municipality or multiple municipalities. It recognizes their career success, dedication, and involvement in their local communities. 



To be nominated for the award, a municipal employee must have at least 20 years of service for one or more Saskatchewan urban municipalities.



The current municipality may nominate its employee by completing the nomation form.

The city manager, CAO, administrator, or clerk is to confirm the start date of the period of service by completing the appropriate section of the award nomination form.



The administration will approve the nominee by confirming that they meet the criteria and they have not previously received the award.



The successful candidate will receive the following:

  • Certificate, pin, and corsage/boutonniere
  • Invitation to the Special Guest and Award Recipient Reception before the President's Banquet
  • Reserved seating at the President's Banquet
  • Biography and photo in the Award's Booklet
  • Professional photo



The nominating municipality pays for banquet tickets and an awards fee to cover the costs associated with the awards program on the night of the banquet (only if registered to attend). The municipality will be invoiced following the convention. 



The Meritorious Service Awards are presented at the President's Banquet at SUMA's Annual Convention.



Complete award nominations are to be submitted by January 13, 2022. No late submissions will be accepted.
