For the past 28 years the ALEAs have showcased individuals who have made a meaningful impact and contribution to their organisation and community.

The ALEAs was a fantastic opportunity to recognise and acknowledge our most outstanding leaders. In 2016, we experienced a 46% increase of nominations and applications compared to 2015, with a total of 1,050 submissions. 2016 saw two additional categories added. First, the Student of the Year, to recognise our young leaders and second, the Community Leader of the Year. We were pleased to see our winners from a range of different industries all around the country – a great representation of diversity!

2016 Winners:

•    Community Leader of the Year: Glenn Keys FAIM (ACT) | Co-Founder & Director, Project Independence

•    Emerging Leader of the Year: Paul Mead AIMe (NT) | Sports Consultant, Paul Mead Consulting

•    Leader / Manager of the Year: Cherie Curtis FAIM (QLD) | CEO, Revelian

The application process represents an investment in the future. An award nomination, and the potential opportunity to be judged as a finalist or winner in the Awards, recognises not only the efforts of the nominee, but also those of their staff and supporters.

Nominations and applications for the 2017 ALEAs are now open!

Involvement in the Awards is free of charge for all participants and applications close on Friday 21st July 2017!
