Municipal Service Awards

To honor those who have served a single municipality for twenty-five years or more, the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities has established the "CCM Municipal Service Awards Program."

The total years of service does not need to be consecutive, but must be cumulative for a single municipality. Although the nominations for these awards begin with twenty-five years of service, CCM is also recognizing those who have served longer, in five-year intervals.
