"My first exposure to LGPro (and the reason I became a member) was because I was fortunate enough to be selected to participate in the 2016 LGPro Emerging Leaders Program (ELP). Throughout my Local Government career, I have predominantly attended finance focused events, so I have really enjoyed the change in meeting people from a wide range of disciplines.

Having enjoyed this exposure to LGPro and the new networking opportunities it created, I decided to renew my membership. In addition to attending a Young Professionals Networking event, I have volunteered to be a mentor for the Mentoring Program, where I hope to pass on some of my learnings from ELP."
