What a great success: Katharina Di Lena won the ALGIM award! After finishing her studies of Marketing & Communication four years ago she started her career in New Zealand. 

The Wairoa District Council has been recognised with two awards from the recent ALGIM awards.

ALGIM is the National Association of Local Government Information Management and represents the national and international interests in

  • web and digital
  • information and records management

The Wairoa District Council was recognized for its joint efforts alongside the rest of Hawke’s Bay’s Councils by winning the Best Digital Project award. This award acknowledged the development of the regional website which was adopted by all of Hawke’s Bay’s Councils.

The Wairoa District Council also received the Most Improved Best Customer Service Experience Award this year.

Chief Executive Steven May says that he was extremely pleased that the Council has been recognized with these awards and it is testament to all the work and effort that has been carried out by our staff.

 “I know that our staff spent a lot of time on developing our new website alongside the other Councils in Hawke’s Bay and this award recognizes not only our efforts, but the efforts of our whole region in showing that we can all work together to deliver a great website experience for our ratepayers and community.”

Congrats to Katharina and her team from Austria!
