Jim Hullick Award
The 2017 Jim Hullick Award was presented at the Conference Dinner on 15 November.
Named after our past LGA CEO Jim Hullick, this award recognises state and commonwealth public servants who have demonstrated a partnership approach in working with councils.
This year the award was presented to joint winners for the first time – Ronnie Faggotter and Geoff Strempel.
Ronnie was recognised for the tremendous work she’s done helping councils and communities recover after emergency events.
In her role as Director of the State Recovery Office, Ronnie has demonstrated great empathy and understanding of the need for local recovery planning.
Geoff started out working in local government as the Manager Libraries, Arts and Cultural Services at the City of Onkaparinga. He is currently Associate Director with the State Library of SA, where he works closely with councils and the LGA on the 100-odd libraries that councils run – and 40 they co-fund – across the State.
Since 2008 Geoff has played a pivotal role in the development, implementation and advancement of the One Card library network system.
