2019 LGPro Active Ageing & Wellbeing Seminar
LGPro is the member association and leading voice for people working in Local Government in Victoria.
The former Aged & Disability Services Seminar has been rebadged in 2019 as the Active Ageing and Wellbeing Seminar. The new title and focus reflect the changing nature of the sector with many Councils moving out of the direct delivery of aged and disability services and moving into the areas of active ageing and wellbeing.
This year’s theme is Inclusive Connections and sessions will focus on Local Government’s role in building inclusive communities to foster the ability for the ageing population, younger people (under 65 years) and those with a disability to lead full and satisfying lives.
A mission to support and promote an active and healthy lifestyle
With a mission to support and promote an active and healthy lifestyle not only within the sector but also our communities, McArthur Aged & Disability team is looking forward to attending the Seminar and the Awards Dinner. Delegates can enjoy a coffee at the McArthur Café area and talk to the McArthur team.
McArthur has been Australia's leading provider of specialist Aged Care recruitment and career solutions for over 20 years and we have consistently brought new innovation and service improvement initiatives to both clients and candidates. With an uncompromised focus on quality service and minimising risk, we engage with all the sector's associations and peak bodies on a national basis and in every state. It allows us to continuously build our networks, regularly communicate with all major players and keep our finger on the pulse of industry changes and developments.
