Providing you a broad range of programs to help you in your work and to progress your Local Government career.

Progress your career with LGPro

  • I was lucky to be in the 2017 Mastering Management Program. I met a vibrant and energetic group of Managers from the sector - all experiencing similar challenges, and the highs and lows of working in Local Government.
  • I originally joined as a Mentor in the Mentoring Program to give back to the sector but found there was just as much receiving as giving from the progam.

LGPro opens doors

  • I liked the idea of being part of a Local Government focused body. Already I've attended fantastic professional development and met wonderful people, all of which have assisted my development.
  • LGPro provides members with a network from all 79 Councils. Connecting across the sector means that we can learn and grow as professionals. If all Local Government professionals are improving their skills and knowledge, then ultimately the community benefits.
