SHOALHAVEN Water director Carmel Krogh has won a major International Women’s Day award.
Ms Krogh was awarded the Regional Council Senior Staff Member Award in the 2013 Ministers’ Awards for Women in Local Government.
South Coast MP Shelley Hancock said Mrs Krogh was a good example of what the awards were about, celebrating the unsung heroes of local government, who through their dedication make a difference to the local community.
“I extend my congratulations to Carmel Krogh on this significant achievement,” said Mrs Hancock.
“Carmel has been the director of Shoalhaven Water at Shoalhaven City Council since September 2007 and has done a fantastic job in continuing to develop and maintain our local water assets.
“With more than 30 years experience in the industry, this award is a fantastic acknowledgement of the extensive work Carmel has undertaken in local government and in her field of expertise.
“In December last year the NSW government announced Carmel’s appointment to the Board of the Sydney Catchment Authority recognising her extensive experience in the industry.
“Carmel is a role model for other young women and I congratulate her on her acknowledgement as part of International Women’s Day,” Mrs Hancock said.
The Ministers’ Awards for Women in Local Government are part of International Women’s Day celebrations, and aim to raise the profile of women in local government.
