Who We Are

Local Government Managers Australia (LGMA) is the leader in local government advocacy, collaborative learning and professional development.

LGMA was first registered in 1951 (as the Institute of Municipal Administration) and today is the leading professional body for local government managers and aspiring managers in Queensland.  The twin goals of LGMA are to:

  • Foster the professionalism of the local government sector in Queensland; and
  • Continually enhance the system of local government.
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 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, 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.

Our members are the leaders in the sector, who are committed to their careers and want to make a difference to the profession of local government.  By working together, they help create a stronger sector, providing practical advice to government, supporting other local government professionals and sharing information and skills.

If you work in local government in Queensland, then LGMA is an organisation you should be involved with - for your own career and in order to better serve your community and the broader Queensland community.  LGMA is here for you, so let us help your career goals.  Talk to us about whether we can help you connect with local government officers in order to help them better serve their communities.
