AIAM Annual Awards Program

Each year AIAM recognises and celebrates the achievement and contribution of dedicated Animal Management Officers and teams across Australia through two awards; Animal Management Officer of the Year and Animal Management Plan of the Year.

These Officers and Teams inspire us through their achievements and challenge our thinking to make a difference in our own communities contributing to better animal management experiences for pets, their owners and neighbours. 

If you know someone who deserves to be recognised then nominate them for an Award!

Submissions close 30 September 2018.

Anyone can nominate fellow workmates or teams for one of the AIAM Awards. It may be someone who has influenced you, someone you work with or a team who has implemented great work in another municipality that has shown influential results in their community.
