2017 WALGA Local Government Convention & Trade Exhibition, 2-4 August 2017

CDN Executive Officer, John Smithies presented the Schema of Measurable Cultural Outcomes to a room of 175 Councillors from councils across Western Australia. On the second day a workshop on Cultural Development Planning was delivered to council officers.

Under the theme Members First, the 2017 WA Local Government Convention bought together several hundred senior Local Government Council representatives from across the State. The program reflected on how to better understand and respond to the needs of Local Government by focusing on improving Member engagement and service. There is an emphasis on practical sessions and this year’s program incorporated three concurrent sessions covering topics such as Emergency Management, community engagement, waste and recycling, and implications of the new NDIS, to name a few. The event included WALGA’s AGM, followed by two days of plenary and concurrent sessions.
