While the pandemic has kept us apart, Local Government Professionals Australia is bringing the sector together. Learn from the best in public service, network with your peers, and reach your Federal counterparts directly in a COVID-safe environment from your home State. Live, in-person, and digitally enhanced, welcome to the premier local government conference of 2020: the Local Government Meeting.
Live networking at venues across the country in Canberra, Perth, Adelaide, Launceston, Darwin, Noosa and Townsville. Digital access available from anywhere you are.
The Local Government Meeting is one of the only opportunities this year to meet your cross-council peers and network with national professionals face-to-face and through digital platforms. The year has seen development and learning opportunities cut short across the calendar, but meanwhile the issues affecting the sector have not been resolved – they have only compounded. This must-attend professional development event will cover the renewed financial sustainability challenge, disaster mitigation and recovery, diversity in leadership, the future skills of local government professionals, and much more over two engaging days of interactive sessions. Meet your peers and join the conversation.
