2021 Annual Conference
The 2021 Annual Conference (AGM) took place online on 29 November 2021.
The postponement of local government elections in NSW had a significant flow-on effect for LGNSW’s Annual Conference, previously scheduled to take place at the Hyatt Regency Sydney from 28-30 November.
As a result, we had to take the difficult decision to split our premier annual event into two components:
- A one-hour AGM to present our annual report and financial reports, which was held online from 9.30am on Monday 29 November 2021; and
- A Special Conference – including the debate and resolution of motions setting our advocacy agenda for 2022 - to be held in-person at the Hyatt Regency Sydney from Monday 28 February to Wednesday 2 March 2022.
The previous timetable (28-30 November) would have placed the three-day event squarely in the last week of the election campaign period – a schedule not only inconvenient for all councillors, but also one with potentially far-reaching implications.
