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.
