John H. Nail Memorial Award
The John H. Nail Memorial Award was created by the City Managers’ Department at the 1978 Annual Spring Conference in honor and memory of a highly regarded city manager and individual. The award is presented annually to an outstanding municipal assistant who has contributed significantly to his or her city government and to the advancement of the community as a whole.

Award for the Advancement of Diverse Communities
The City Managers’ Department established a committee on Diverse Communities to provide California communities the necessary resources and tools to help increase acceptance of our diversity and become more open, accessible, and inclusive. The Committee’s focus is on diversity within California, both inside and outside city organizations.
The Award for Advancement of Diverse Communities honors a city manager or assistant who has been most successful in promoting the advancement of diversity within the community and the workplace through the development and implementation of effective programs, policies and/or practices encouraging diversity.
