The Unsung Hero Award
The Unsung Hero is voted for by the NLIS hub helpdesk team. The team nominates an individual or a team within a Local Land Charges department that they feel consistently makes an extra effort to work with them to make the search process as seamless as possible. The helpdesk team will give examples of how the department (or a person within the department) shines and impresses them.
