Local Government Professionals Australia (LG Professionals Australia) is the federated peak body representing Australian Local Government Professionals, working to give individuals and organisations opportunities, networks and representation at the national and international level.
An unmissable annual event for local government sector, the National Congress & Business Expo is the culmination of a year’s worth of future-thinking issues and debate; live on stage.
A networking event for the Local Government industry on a national scale as hundreds of Local Government professionals converge once a year to learn best practice from global thought-leaders and practical experts from our circles.
Embracing the future of leaderships, 2019 National Congress will bring in the most engaged thinkers, change-makers and thought leaders to develop better teams, better organisations and better individuals in every council.
As reflecting in the theme of this year's Congress, the focus is taking on tomorrow’s impending challenges for councils and local government professionals.
The National President of LG Professionals Australia has also highlighted in his invitation: “This year’s Congress is also tackling how to embrace diversity in councils by promoting gender equity in a very real and practical way, managing the growing challenge of the politicisation we see of local government management and will give you practical information on how to better engage with your communities through new tech-enabled citizencentred governance.”
