LGPro actively advocates for our members to influence the sector and other levels of Government by providing the officers’ perspective as well as independent, expert, non political advice.

We participate in, prepare and present submissions and work that helps to shape the sector’s relationship with other government and stake holders.

Through LGPro, our more than 30 Special Interest Groups are also increasingly having the opportunity to provide their expert advice and input to government and other agencies wanting to gather information and test new ideas.

Campaign to protect authorised Council officers in the line of duty

We are disappointed that our campaign calling for more protection for authorised Council officers carrying out their duties has not been supported by the Victorian Attorney General, Martin Pakula.

We will continue to lobby the Minister for Local Government and Attorney General on this issue.
