LGNSW Council Summits

LGNSW Council Summits 2019

Following a successful series of council summits last year, members have continued to express a desire for engagement on a regional basis.

In response, LGNSW is planning another series of summits across NSW in 2019.

The summits will provide members with the opportunity to raise matters important to them and their local communities with the President, Board members and senior staff.

They will also give councils the opportunity to discuss and share initiatives, and experiences, with neighbouring councils within their region.



Cr. Linda Scott President, LGNSW
