All Meetings of the Association are open to the General Public, unless a resolution is passed for the meeting to go into "camera" for privacy or commercial in-confidence matters.
The venues of the meetings are displayed on each Agenda.

Representatives from the LGA, PIRSA, and, on occasions, the Dept. Planning and Local Government (DPLG) attend each meeting and take the opportunity to brief the Association of the relevant matters before their respective bodies. We acknowledge the support of Wendy Campana, Executive Director, LGA who is ready to assist the Region and ensure that the LGA has a presence at our meetings. The Association also enjoys a close working relationship with its State and Federal Members of Parliament, a number of whom are regular attendees at our meetings.
The President has the practice of giving each of our guests the opportunity to address our meetings briefly about matters and issues before them that may be of interest to the Association and its Member Councils. The contribution from all of the speakers, presenters and guests keeps the Association and the Delegates abreast of a wide ranging number of issues that impact on Local Government and the communities in the Region.
