Membership

LGPro is the leading voice and professional member association for people working in Local Government in Victoria providing quality professional development to support them in their work, to progress their careers and to help them develop strong networks across the sector. We also represent the views and advocate on behalf of professionals working in the sector.
 

Council Subscription


Councils are invited to support the work of LGPro through Council Subscription. This membership is open to all Councils in Victoria. We represent the interests of our member Councils and their staff, provide high quality professional development activities and programs at an affordable cost, and we provide many opportunities for member Council's staff to network across the sector with the aim of strengthening and promoting the sector as a valued tier of government.

Council Subscriptions are valid until 30 June each year. Renewals are sent out in early June each year and are due on 1 July.
 

Corporate Partnership


LGPro offers Corporate Partnerships to businesses and organisations with an interest in developing a profile in the Local Government sector. Corporate Partners are actively promoted to an extensive network of people working in Local Government including key decisionmakers.

Corporate Partnership is based on a financial year from 1 July - June 30. are valid until 30 June each year. Renewals are sent out in June each year and are due on 1 July.

Individual Membership


LGPro Individual Membership gives our members a voice on issues that matter to them and an opportunity to be part of the solution. LGPro Members can participate in professional development activities at significantly reduced rates, acquire specialist advice and resources and access a professional community that will support them through their career in Local Government. Individual Memberships are valid for 12 months at which time members have the opportunity to renew for another year.
 

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.
