The Events Team at Local Government NSW run seminars throughout the year to address issues pertinent to council events. The meetings encourage the exchange of information, education and networking amongst local government staff involved in staging and facilitating events.  

Our aims and objectives:

  • To support learning and development through knowledge sharing.
  • To educate and facilitate networking opportunities through regular meetings.
