One of LGMA’s signature training programmes, Propeller provides delegates with the opportunity to team up with LG officers from other councils to share knowledge/information and learn about LG experiences from other Queensland councils.
Propeller is a commitment of nine workshops (3 in Brisbane and 6 at councils + travel and team time for workshop and project commitments). It is the ideal programme to learn more about LG, build networks and collaborate with other council officers working in Queensland.
This programme is suitable for council officers of any age, experience, role, level and interests. It is a unique experiential learning opportunity for personal and professional development.
Nominations for the 2024 Propeller Programme will open on 26 September 2023 and close on 23 February 2024 via the LGMA online registration process. Participants will be confirmed on 23 February 2024. A minimum of 14-16 delegates are required.
The programme brochure is available here. The programme fee is $3,800 per person (includes GST, excludes travel and accommodation).Propeller Programme Information
