Community Services Village

In 2012, the Queensland Local Government Community Services Association made a decision to pool resources and become a part of LGMA Queensland.  The Community Services Village picks up where the QLGCSA left off; providing professional development and support to support officers in community services functions of councils and acting to enhance the profile of the field. 

The Village provides an opportunity for the group to network, discuss emerging trends as well as provide a forum for information exchange and professional development.

The Community Services Village will be held in Brisbane on Tuesday 18 October 2016
