Who are we?

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.
