After listening to feedback the LGA received from the sector regarding forum pricing and venues, the Annual Council Members Forum, scheduled for Friday 27 and Saturday 28 October 2017 has been moved to a new venue and is being offered at a revised fee.

The theme of this year’s forum is “Advocacy and Leadership”.

Council Members are a vital link between their community and local government, playing a key role in communicating messages to the community. 

This forum will unpack the role of Council Members in sector wide advocacy campaigns. It will offer Council Members strategies around how best to establish partnerships, how to network and how to pursue opportunities that promote the interests of their community.
 
Leadership is often viewed as managing people and resources. However, while these are important components, one of the most challenging aspects of leadership is not so much ‘what’ to do, but rather ‘how’ to do it effectively.

Day two of the forum will be dedicated to assisting participants identify and build their leadership strengths and in turn increase personal and professional confidence and advocacy skills.
 
Each year the Council Members Forum provides Council Members with a unique opportunity to hear about the current issues facing Local Government and to share views and experiences with their colleagues in an effort to raise awareness and understanding of priorities and strategic issues.
 
We encourage all Councillors to attend this very important Local Government event.

***Price includes dinner on the first night + lunch, morning and afternoon teas***

Partners are also welcome to attend the dinner for an additional charge of $100 + GST.
