Discussions centred around the volatility in the political landscape in New Zealand at the time of the conference still not having a clear winner in the recently held federal election, the need for funding for local government – especially its infrastructure requirements, success stories to encourage all of us to continue the great work local government undertakes, and, pleasingly, time to consider the needs of the people who live in our communities – with a focus on how to engage our young people so we can hear their voices too.
The conference theme, Transforming today’s vision into tomorrow’s reality challenged all delegates to take learnings back to their workplaces and implement them for a better future.
Make sure you put the 2018 Conference in Queenstown in September in your diary.
Congratulations SOLGM! for yet another great event.
