Who is Local Government Managers Australia (Queensland)?

Local Government Managers Australia, Queensland (LGMA Queensland) is the leader in local government advocacy, collaborative learning and professional development.  We represent the needs of our members to other spheres of government and to various stakeholders in order to create the most effective working environment for officers and to allow them to thrive.  LGMA Queensland seeks to ensure its members are industry leaders, always at the forefront of good practice, change, innovation and the continuous elevation of local government in the state. 

 We have developed a collaborative membership, constantly growing in vitality and diversity. With all Queensland councils involved with LGMA Queensland, we have access to some of the most influential practitioners and are able to develop specialist events and training programmes, specific to the needs of individuals working in the sector. 

If you work in local government in Queensland, then LGMA Queensland is an organisation you should be involved with – for your own career and in order to better serve your community. 


Managing Your Development

LGMA Queensland is your organisation and is here to help you in your local government career.  In 2017 we will again offer a host of new and established programmes aimed at helping our members improve their skills and practices so they can perform better; for their own benefit and for that of their organisations and communities.  No matter where you are in your career, chances are we have a programme that will support you in reaching that next stage of development.

Do you need skills in managing people?  Ignite is available for newer managers or the Management Masterclass if you are more experienced.

Do you want to troubleshoot matters specific to your area and learn from the experiences of other councils?  The Forums should give you this exposure.

Do you want to develop your understanding of how Queensland local governments work and what they do across the state and across departments?  The Propeller Programme will give you this.

Or are you searching for someone to guide you and support you as you shape your career aspirations and move toward them?  The Mentoring Programme will provide you with a mentor to help you through the coming months and, in a structured way, assist you to develop the skills and approaches you need.

Let us help you reach those goals in 2017.  Contact any of the staff at LGMA Queensland for more information about these opportunities or to discuss a tailor development programme to suit your needs.

The 2017 LGMA Queensland calendar of events can be accessed here.
