LGANT  Annual and General Meeting

The Annual and General Meeting of LGANT

 is to be held on

Thursday and Friday  1-2 December 2016

at the

Alice Springs Town Council

Registration will be at 8.30am on both days

With the end of the year almost on us, there are some important events in the coming weeks which I am very much looking forward to.

Preparations for the final 2016 General Meeting and Annual General Meeting are well advanced and agendas have been issued. The AGM will include elections for the Executive, with the Australian Electoral Commission overseeing the counting of the vote. It will also include an address from the Minister for Housing and Community Development, the Hon Gerry McCarthy MLA and the Minister and I will be  presenting the Local Government Long Service Awards.

I will be attending the Joint Kimberley and NT Local Government Forum at the end of November. This is a fantastic opportunity to keep building relationships with our colleagues and progress shared issues.

I would like to congratulate Mayor David O’Loughlin who was elected as the new President of the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA). I am looking forward to working with him and my fellow Vice President Alderman Doug Chipman.

Please remember to complete the member survey for the 2015/16 year. Your input and feedback is critical in making sure LGANT continues to provide members with quality services which best meet your needs. I look forward to seeing many of you at the AGM and conference and encourage members to attend.
