Here you will find resources from across the country, from our network’s State Associations, and from our international partners to help you and your local government through the pandemic, from personal health considerations to assistance in remotely managing your organisation.
LG Professionals – COVID-19 Updates
National Office in-person events like the National Local Government Conference, Canberra Behind-the-Scenes, and the Learning & Innovation Experience have been postponed until they can be rescheduled. Current registrants and delegates will be notified personally as this develops and wider updates will be provided in regular national communications. The Local Government Mentoring Program is an online program that is unaffected by the pandemic and is still running.
Below you will find updates from State Associations in the LG Professionals network with valuable resources and further links to helpful information.
Here you will find templates and existing council plans that you can replicate for use in your own council. A special thank you to the generous local government teams and organisations who have shared these resources.
