The LG Professionals WA Annual State Conference

Held annually, this conference is the key professional development event in the calendar of Chief Executive Officers, Directors and Senior Managers in Local Government each year.
A great component of this popular event is our diverse trade display, which provides the ideal opportunity for delegates to talk with representatives from various companies who supply goods and services to  the Local Government Industry. 
This popular event also aims to award and recognise those Local Government officers who demonstrate excellence and a high level of achievement in Local Government, through the LG Professionals WA Awards.

The Finance Professionals Conference

The LG Professionals WA Finance Professionals Conference is the leading professional development event for Local Government officers working in the finance sector, with a program that focuses on topical issues from the ever-changing finance environment. Again held annually, this conference also includes a diverse trade display featuring many finance sector companies, services and products such as banking, superannuation, asset valuation and insurance.

The Professional Development Conference

Held annually in the South West region of WA this is the key professional development conference for managers and officers in local government, many of whom will move into key decision making roles in the future. 
This conference aims to encourage these delegates to further develop their career in Local Government and to build relationships with suppliers attending the event.
