Events Network

About the Special Interest Group

The Events Network allows people working in the events field within Local Government to come together to share information and to provide support.

Training and education is a priority for the group which is actively creating training opportunities for the network and working with training and educational institutions to design courses for event managers. The Special Interest Group strives to establish standards and processes which will create consistency across Councils, including permits and standards adhered to for the safe and successful management of events. It also works within and across other Special Interest Groups to ensure integration of knowledge, support and advice. 

The group aims to be a central point for liaison with government, business and regulatory services, to share information in all areas of event management and become a recognised body for event information dispersal.

Online Teams community

This Special Interest Group is supported by an online community. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our communities are only for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow colleagues questions and sharing resources. You can also see who else is involved and get in touch with them quickly.  Agendas, minutes, presentations and other resources will also be posted on the online community.
