The Stutz Award annually recognizes individuals who have served 25 years or more with a state municipal league. The League commends both Yvonne and Kaye for their contributions and dedication to the League and all California cities.
Yvonne joined the League on March 14, 1983 and has served in various capacities during her 29 years. For nearly 20 years, Yvonne served as the League’s legislative advocate on environmental and community services issues as well as overseeing the League’s policy development process including its annual membership resolutions process.
She currently works with the League’s research arm, the Institute for Local Government (ILG), covering children’s health insurance and climate change issues. She codirects ILG’s Sustainable Communities Program and leads ILG’s initiative to help local agencies save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, through ILG’s Beacon Award recognition program.
Kaye joined the League on Jan. 12, 1987 and has served as a key member of the accounting team, managing the League’s accounts receivables. In her 26 years with the League, she has been instrumental in helping the League achieve its goal of a paperless accounting department and providing a high level of customer service to our members, partners, and vendors. Prior to joining the League of California Cities, she worked with two other statewide associations and for a private bookkeeping service.
