2017 Annual Conference round up
This year’s conference was an outstanding success with 745 delegates registering to attend conference sessions and the dinner.
Following feedback from the sector we trialled a new format in 2017 starting with six specialist workshops on Wednesday afternoon where participants heard from expert speakers on topical issues in Local Government and received tools to help them in their role.
This was followed by a Welcome Event on Wednesday evening where almost 100 people enjoyed Melbourne’s balmy weather for a couple of hours of networking, socialising and discussing what they had learnt in the afternoon workshops.
Thursday provided an action packed day for delegates with three keynote addresses, a presentation by our 2016 Emerging Leaders, four Short Talks, a Sharing the Wisdom session where winners from the 2016 Awards for Excellence discussed their winning projects, and an Are you Paying Attention quiz feature session.
The day concluded with the Annual Conference Dinner attended by almost 600 people where the winners of the 2017 LGPro Awards for Excellence were announced.
