Navigating the public sector and achieving for the community.

As young professionals, we can often be frustrated by the many steps it takes to GET SH!T DONE in the world of local government. We've got big, bright, bubbling ideas that are ready to go but there always seems to be something in the way. Sound familiar?

This conference is designed to help give local government professional the tools and techniques needed to achieve within the local government context AND MAKE SH!T HAPPEN.

With increasingly demanding and complex community expectations, limited resources and competing demands, it's critical that we find new ways to delver services and be leaders in our chosen fields.

We have expert speakers who know the challenges that public sector employees encounter, and they can help!

Join us if you're looking for: inspiration, an energetic lift, new skills and ways of thinking, and a few laughs.

  Online Community

This SIG 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 SIG colleagues questions and sharing resources. You can also see who else is involved in the SIG and get in touch with them quickly.  Agendas, minutes, presentations and other SIG resources will also be posted on the online community.
