Networks

At Local Government NSW (LGNSW), we support and facilitate a number of free networks for NSW council staff to connect, share information and discuss local government issues.

These networks enable local government employees to engage with like-minded peers, share knowledge, information and resources, and build a network of industry contacts.

Below you’ll find more details about each of our networks.

If you've already joined one or more of our networks, you can login all under the one platform.
