Australian Local Govt Assn AGM & National General Assembly 2015
I am currently at the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) National General Assembly (NGA), which is held in Canberra, at this time every year.
Canberra, I believe, is chosen for its welcoming warm climate and world famous beaches, but I may have heard that incorrectly.
This year I believe there are over 800 delegates from around Australia (inc Christmas Island, Cocos & Keeling Islands, Tasmania and even New Zealand), almost all of whom are Mayors and Councillors.
It is a fantastic opportunity to swap information, stories, whines, numbers, email addresses and visions in our roles as elected members as well as of course attending the formalities such as specialist speakers, presentations, workshops on pertinent issues and debate motions at the ALGA AGM.
Near midnight each night I will post that day’s activities so you know what I learnt form that day and am taking back to Port Adelaide Enfield.
