The Municipal Group of Valuers (MGV) “Emerging Leader Award” goes to talented young Opteon Valuer Linda Craig.
To be eligible Linda had to submit an MGV-approved research project addressing a positive contribution to the valuation profession for local government.
Here is an excerpt from an article published by Property Review Australia which details Linda’s achievement. If you are Property Review Australia subscriber, you can read the full article by logging in to your account or clicking here.
“Applicants are required to submit an abstract of up to 500 words, explaining what their project is about, how it is to be undertaken, and what benefits the applicant believes will flow from the project personally, and to the wider valuations profession.
The research project is then completed and presented to an MGV General Meeting of members up to one year after bestowment of the Award.
Craig’s submission proposed to review the role of the Valuer General in local government valuations.
Craig is based in the Opteon Geelong office working as a Graduate Managing Valuer, overseeing staff in her team and the relationships with government clients including Surf Coast Shire, Borough of Queenscliffe, Golden Plains Shire, Corangamite Shire, Glenelg Shire and South Grampians Shire.”
