Our annual general meeting is held once a year and all members of the association are invited to attend.  The purpose of the AGM is to give members a report on the association's activities and finances for the previous year, to allow time for members to ask questions, and to elect members for our Board of Management for the coming year.  LGMA Queensland holds it's AGM during the Annual Conference each year.

The dates for our 2020 AGM will be advised shortly.

Members of LGMA Queensland are expected to hold to high standards of professionalism and ethical behaviour.  They are governed by a Code of Conduct.  These were first introduced in 1963 to demonstrate and secure the committment of members to the good governance of local government.  They have been modernised regularly since that time.

A critical part of LGMA Queensland’s role in supporting members and the sector is the work the organisation does in advocating on behalf of members.  LGMA Queensland works with state and federal government and other stakeholders to ensure the best possible working environment for officers in order to provide the highest, appropriate levels of service to communities.  In addition to issues which arise from time to time, LGMA Queensland advocates on a series of approved policy platforms.  These long standing positions are articulated through the LGMA Qld Policy Platforms.
