National General Assembly (NGA) of Local Government
18-21 June 2017
National Convention Centre, Canberra
The 2017 NGA will be held from 18 - 21 June at the National Convention Centre, Canberra.
The NGA represents a unique opportunity for leading Australian companies to connect with over 800 delegates from councils across Australia.
The NGA is the premiere event in the local government calendar and is an opportunity for key local government representatives to debate issues of national significance, hear from political and academics speakers as well as to develop policy and fiscal strategy for the coming year.
Local government plays a significant role in the national economy and councils play critical roles in their local economies. The NGA provides an important opportunity for the sector to unite and build on the work of the ALGA Board and State and Territory Local Government Associations strengthen the contribution that local government makes.
Nationally, local government:
- employs 189,000 Australians (around10 per cent of the total public sector);
- owns and manages non-financial assets with a replacement value of $437 million;
- raises around 3.4 per cent of Australia's total taxation revenue per annum; and
- has annual operational expenditure of around $33 billion, or just under 6 per cent of total public sector spending.
