Future Local Government

Future Local Government Series

LGPro’s Future Local Government series supports Councils and staff in meeting the challenges and opportunities their future presents. The sessions focus on the skills and knowledge/leadership competencies workforce leaders will need.

"Councils need to be accountable for the decisions they make on behalf of their community. This webinar was insightful and acknowledged that while local government can at times be a grey area, Councils can still choose to be consistent with what they do."

- Tracey, City of Whittlesea
