About the Program

Twenty four places are available each year to current leaders, officers who aspire to positions of leadership, and to those who aspire to provide leadership in a particular area of interest in Local Government. 

Nominations open in September this year and the successful candidates are notified prior to Christmas. Participants in this program must be a financial LGPro Individual Member. 

Each year ELP participants are assigned a group project which they work on throughout the year and present their findings in both a report and at a session at the LGPro Annual Conference.

ELP graduates have formed a network that meets to provide a forum for peer support and to promote professional development through a range of dedicated events and activities.



I saw ELP as a way to further develop my leadership skills and build networks with my Local Government colleagues. I gained more confidence in myself as a leader - the belief that I can take on leadership roles and strong networks with local government colleagues. - Hannah Rowlands, Communications Coordinator, Whitehorse Council
