Sport and Recreation Village

This Village aims to support local government officers working in the sport and recreation areas of Queensland councils.

Sport and recreation is such an important part of Australian life and a key connector of communities.  Communities with good and varied sport and recreation services exhibit better community wellbeing than those without.  This Village is a place for officers responsible for those services to learn from each other, share information, hear about collaboration/partnership approaches being developed across councils, receive updates on the latest best-practice policies (including sharing of templates) and, ultimately,  to improve the wellbeing of our communities through the sport and recreation services on offer. 

We trust that you derive value from the interactions and information shared via this forum.

Note: LGMA Exchanges are available at no cost to officers of subscribing councils.

Want to connect with officers in this village? Join Our LinkedIn Group.

This group has been created to allow members of this village the opportunity to share information, upload documents and post topics for discussion. This group is private and only officers working in Queensland Local Governments will be accepted. We believe it will serve as a valuable extension of our existing exchange, as it is a great tool for both networking and cross council collaboration.

Making a LinkedIn is free, you can create an account here: Sign Up | LinkedIn
