CEO Forums

About the forums

These forums are held three times a year to address topical issues from a Chief Executive Officer perspective. We facilitate the forums to allow CEOs across the sector to collaborate together and develop solutions to issues facing Local Government. The forums also provide ongoing professional development and networking opportunities for senior executives in the sector.

They are held over an afternoon at both city and regional venues followed by a dinner in the evening.
