Dick Cahill Memorial Award


Dick was a well-known local government finance professional who contributed so much to his profession, spanning over 35 years. Dick had only recently retired from Camden Council before his sudden death in October 2001, and his loss was felt by many.

His name will be treasured for a long time to come, and this award ensures his memory will remain part of the Finance Professionals Member Network, which he so readily supported.
