Events Network

About the SIG

The Events Network allows people working in the events field within Local Government to come together to share information and to provide support.

Training and education is a priority for the group which is actively creating training opportunities for the network and working with training and educational institutions to design courses for event managers. The SIG strives to establish standards and processes which will create consistency across Councils, including permits and standards adhered to for the safe and successful management of events. It also works within and across other SIGs to ensure integration of knowledge, support and advice.

The group aims to be a central point for liaison with government, business and regulatory services, to share information in all areas of event management and become a recognised body for event information dispersal.

Who Should Attend

Local Government officers who are responsible for organising events. Current SIG members work in the areas of art and culture, community development, and governance in both metropolitan and regional Councils.

Events Network Online Forum

This SIG is supported by an online forum. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our forums are just for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow SIG colleagues questions and sharing resources. Agendas, minutes and presentations will also be posted on the forum.
