Our Annual State Conference is developed to have broad appeal and relevance for the entire sector


Safe, inclusive, responsive, innovative and resilient – all words used to describe the role of local government in building and protecting our communities.

But what does the future of the South Australian local government sector look like?

In a world of increasing speed and complexity, organisations are struggling to stay relevant.  We need new ways to present local government. The conference program will touch on how with increasing pressure and community expectations we can create, lead and manage teams in highly adverse and uncertain environments, future proofing our workforce to remain nimble, responsive and in touch, as we have demonstrated in the last 18 months. It will touch on the important questions of:

  • Who are the next generation of professionals the sector needs?
  • How can we adapt, find new capacity and the confidence in the recruitment of new talent?
  • How do we shift and appeal to new markets?
  • What role do we all play in the promotion of and attraction of talent to the sector?

The aim for the day is to be uplifting, educational, positive and inspiring.

Conference attendees will leave with:

  • Confidence to thrive in complexity
  • Stronger local government networks
  • A feeling of pride to work in this great sector
  • Take away tools to promote the incredible work of the sector

All local government professionals are encouraged to attend.
