The Be the Bridge initiative provides leaders in Local Government with the opportunity to support and encourage staff who deserve recognition for the contribution they make to their team, demonstrate values based leadership and show great potential in the Local Government sector.
LGPro invites its members who are working at Manager, Director and CEO level to be the bridge to someone else’s success by gifting deserving staff LGPro Individual Membership with the support of their organisation.
Recently Wangaratta Rural City Council has embraced the Be the Bridge initiative with the five members of the Council’s Executive Team gifting LGPro Individual Membership to someone in their team. The lucky recipients were: Emily Stone, Team Leader Family & Early Childhood Services; Joanne Turner, Economic Development Officer; Robin Gardner, People and Performance Coordinator; Anthea Sloane, Manager Finance and Courtney Naughton, Waste Management Coordinator.

Fiona Shanks, Manager of People and Performance at Wangaratta described Be the Bridge as a great initiative and she invited other Council’s across Victoria to beat Wangaratta’s result – so “together we can grow the LGPro membership”.
LGPro Membership provides people working in the sector with the opportunity for professional growth, networking and peer support that enhances their contribution to their Council and the sector.
As one member said “Two heads are better than one, so one thousand is amazing. LGPro is the perfect vehicle to share ideas and meet people with solutions to the problems you have”.
