Local Government Professionals Australia, NSW is excited to bring NSW councils these new and innovative professional development bundles which enable your council to recognise and reward your valued staff.

Developing Connections
Provide your existing and future leaders with the opportunity to be member of our leading and collaborative association that represents and supports professionals at all levels in NSW local government. Your staff are supported at all stages of their career through our events, training and networking opportunities creating leaders at the forefront of change and innovation. Under your bundle, you the council control and own these memberships.

Events and Conferences
Strengthen the professional capability of your staff by providing them with access to an array of sector specific events and conferences we deliver each year. We are committed to ensuring your staff stay up to date with the latest in their fields of expertise through learning and discussion with the aim of achieving sector wide transformation.

Networking and Best Practice
Encourage your staff to network with their peers and attend member network forums as well as our conferences and events. Networking is a great opportunity for your staff to present themselves, make new connections and build genuine and long-lasting relationships. This in turn creates opportunities for knowledge sharing, peer support and strengthening of the sector.


Shaping the Future of Local Government
Included in your bundle are student memberships allowing your trainees, cadets or apprentices to have access to sector leaders, the best resources, professional development and a future vision of local government as a meaningful and long-term career.


Professional Development
We take great pride in developing authentic, local government focused, customised training programmes and courses. Provide your staff with opportunities to meet their professional development and career goals through our extensive range of superior programmes. All our programmes are tailored to meet the needs of local government and are aligned with the NSW Public Sector Capability Framework.

Resources and Communications
Members under your bundle receive topical information, case study details, industry updates and webinars to tap into every month. All member benefits and resources are available through MemberNet on our website - including special offers and discounts.
Rewards and Recognition
Members under your bundle are entitled to apply for the many scholarship opportunities we offer. These are unique opportunities to attend conferences, participate in study tours or be enrolled in our residential learning courses. They are designed to reward members with professional development opportunities and to broaden their networks.
