Calendar of Events

LG Professionals WA has a busy annual events schedule, running a variety of high quality and topical professional development conferences and networking events on a regular basis at locations around Western Australia.

Offering excellent networking opportunities our events are very popular and highly regarded by local government officers. Whether you are new to local government, worked in the industry for 30 years, want to meet new people, want to catch up with colleagues you've known for years, want to attempt to become the LG Professionals WA Ambrose Golf Champion or simply want to increase your knowledge in a specialist area we have an event for you!

We also know that local government is a fast paced industry and workloads and time away from the office need prior planning and organising. To assist local government officers in planning their time for 2018, we have compiled a comprehensive events calendar detailing all our conferences, PD events, workshops, networking events and branch meetings.
