Maroondah City Council

"I have maintained my LGPro membership over many years because it offers significant benefits including keeping up to date with sector changes, professional development opportunities, Special Interest Groups and has a regular advocacy seat with the Minister for Local Government at which members can table particular viewpoints without fear or favour. This involvement has been enormously rewarding personally and professionally as it has provided a vehicle to get to know others, learn and develop in the sector and give back to strengthen the sector to ensure we are all growing to be the best we can be when we serve the people in our various communities in our wide ranging Local Government roles. These benefits have been passed on to my organisation as we continue to grow and recognise our people."
