About Us

LGPro was formed in 1996/1997 following a merger of the Victorian branches of the Institute of Municipal Management, the Institute of Municipal Engineering Australia and the Victorian Municipal Community Services Association.

LGPro is the only membership organisation for people working in Victorian Local Government. we are an independent sector-specific group offering high quality, competitively priced professional development programs, networking events and conferences.

Our programs are unique and designed specifically for the Victorian context. When it comes to advocacy, we represent our members views and act on their behalf. We are a not-for-profit organisation and any profits go towards sector development.

We are the member association and leading voice for people working in Local Government in Victoria providing leadership, professional development, advocacy, and representation in the pursuit of excellence.

We are the voice for people working in Local Government.
