LGAT Annual Conference


The LGAT Annual Conference - BIG Thinking, was held at The Tramsheds, Launceston from 22-24 July.  Comprising the LGAT Annual General Meeting, a two-day conference and the announcement of the Tasmanian Local Government Awards for Excellence, the three days offered many opportunities to enhance understanding of the issues, challenges and opportunities facing Local Government.  The conference was complimented with an extensive trade exhibition featuring the latest products and services available to Local Government. 

This year the conference formed part of a full week of activities for Local Government at the  Tramsheds in Launceston, including the 2015 Local Government Research Symposium on 21 July and a workshop on 20 July.
