LGAT 2019 Annual Conference - Program and Registration

Program and Registration

 Registrations are now open for 107th LGAT Annual Conference to be held at Wrest Point, Hobart, 3 -5 July!

This year’s Conference theme is “Finding Your Voice” recognising the unique voices across Local Government as a sector, as individuals and as communities.

We are particularly excited this year to welcome many new faces to our sector with fresh ideas and ready to benefit from shared knowledge. Whether you are new to the sector, or a past delegate, the 107th LGAT Annual Conference offers an exciting program suitable for everyone!

Our plenary presenters include:

  • Heather Rose - Award winning and bestselling Tasmanian author of seven novels.
  • Penny Terry - Former ABC radio presenter and Creative Director of  ‘Healthy Tasmania’
  • Mayor, Tim Shadbolt - New Zealand’s longest serving Mayor  
  • Mayor David O’Loughlin - President of the Australian Local Government Association
  • Matt Pinnegar - CEO of the Local Government Association of South Australia

The panel session is back with a timely focus on the Federal sphere of Government and how Local Government can best have an influential voice.  Our workshop program includes more opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other. This year we are featuring a series of local case studies on citizen engagement and world café sessions on key policy issues for our sector. A symposium featuring the Road Safety Advisory Council, the Mental Health Council of Tasmania and Volunteering Tasmania will bring together some important voices impacting Local Government.

Enjoy plenty of time for networking and catching up at our welcome reception, conference dinner and lunchtimes and we encourage you to peruse the Trade Exhibit at your leisure. Our much loved Coffee Corner is back, again with re-usable cups and you are welcome to bring your own! Don’t forget your LGAT reusable bag from last year and to join the conversation on Twitter during conference at #LGATconf2019.
