 2019 Council Best Practice Showcase and LGA OGM - Banner

The 2019 Council Best Practice Showcase and LGA Ordinary General Meeting will be held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on 11 & 12 April.

Day 1 will kick off with a keynote address from Craig Reucassel, a writer and comedian who is best known for his work with the ABC on The Chaser and The War on Waste series. After morning tea delegates will have a choice of two concurrent streams, with the first highlighting a range of best practice projects from across SA councils in areas such as service transformation, leadership programs, tourism, disability access and inclusion planning, SA coastal council alliance and financial and asset management. The alternate stream will have a waste and recycling focus, noting the current efforts to establish a circular economy in South Australia.

That evening there will be a networking dinner which will commence from 6.30pm at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. The dinner will include the presentation of service certificates and the Joy Baluch Award.

Day 2 will include the Ordinary General Meeting, and prior to this a keynote address, followed by the Minister's Excellence in Public Health Awards.

Special offer to LGA members

The LGA is pleased to offer the following to members:

Offer 1: If your council registers additional delegates (full showcase and OGM eg more than the number it sent to Showcase in 2018) they will receive one free registration. In addition, for every four delegates you register for the full event (both days and dinner) the fifth registration is free. Please note that the free registration only applies if you register for the full showcase pass (both days and dinner)*

Offer 2: We will again be offering two streams at this Showcase event however for the first time one stream will focus on waste and recycling. Given this focus the LGA has recognised that some councils might have staff or elected members interested in this stream. Therefore, the LGA is also offering a day one registration deal. If you register two delegates for the Thursday Showcase you will receive one pass for free.* *conditions apply
