National General Assembly*

Registration is now open for the National General Assembly of Local Government (NGA).

Under the theme ‘Building tomorrow’s communities’, speakers, debate and discussions will seek to highlight local government’s fundamental role in shaping our communities for today and tomorrow.

The discussions will look at how councils, working in partnership with other levels of government, the private sector and the not-for-profit sector, can innovate and harness the ever-increasing range of data and technology to ensure their communities are best-placed to seize the opportunities of tomorrow.

Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) is currently inviting councils to participate in the NGA by submitting a notice of motion under the NGA theme. Submitting a notice of motion to the NGA is an opportunity for individual councils to identify matters of national relevance to the sector and to submit notices of motion to seek the Assembly’s support for these matters to be considered by ALGA as national policy.

Motions should be lodged electronically using the online form available on the NGA website by Friday 21 April 2017.
ALGA encourages councils to ensure their council and community views are represented at the 2017 NGA which will be held in Canberra from 18-21 June.  To register, head to
