Difference between Council Subscription & Individual Membership
Many people working in the sector are confused about the difference between Council subscription and Individual Membership with LGPro. If your Council is an LGPro Council Subscriber it does not automatically make someone working for that Council a Member who can attend our events at Member rates. In fact, Council Subscription and Individual Membership (Fellow, Professional and Young Professional) is quite separate and each has different benefits.
Council Subscription assists us to undertake work that benefits the sector as a whole such as advocacy, representing the officer perspective to other levels of government, and building sector capacity and capability.
Individual Membership is for staff working in Local Government and offers discounts on a range of events and professional development programs, activities and resources. People working in Councils cannot use their Council's Subscription to access member discounts to programs, events and conferences.
