The Nancy Galkowski Legacy Fund, which supports professional development opportunities for anyone working in local government, especially those looking to further their municipal management career, is now accepting applications.

Past awards have included funding for training by the ICMA, SHRM and GFOA, the MMA-Suffolk Municipal Finance Seminar, and various independent trainings. Any professional development training or class will be considered, with the exception of college tuition and the MMA-Suffolk Certificate in Local Government Leadership and Management.

The online application form must be completed by June 16. The Legacy Fund Committee will consider applications and make awards.

Galkowski had a 35-year career in municipal management in Massachusetts and a passion for mentoring younger managers and being of service to her peers. Following her death in 2013, her Massachusetts Municipal Management Association colleagues established a fund to honor her memory and continue her legacy. The MMMA oversees the fund.
