State conference of the Victorian branch of the Australian Association of Women in Local Government this week

Greater Shepparton City Council is preparing to host the 2022 Australian Local Government Women Association Victoria (ALGWA Vic) State Conference from this Sunday, June 5, 2022.

This is the first time the annual conference has been held in the area, which Mayor Cr Kim O’Keeffe said is an exciting opportunity for Greater Shepparton.

“The ALGWA Vic conference is a great way for women in local government to expand their networks and knowledge, and engage in professional development,” she said.

“The conference begins on Sunday evening with a sunset aperitif at the Shepparton Art Museum (SAM) where guests will have the opportunity to network. On Monday, attendees will hear from a range of informative and inspirational speakers in a variety of fields.

“The conference will conclude with a gala dinner on Monday evening at Riverlinks Eastbank, where Dr Tasneem Chopra OAM will deliver a keynote address.”

The theme for this year’s conference is Emerging Creatively. At a time when the world continues to face challenges, there are opportunities to explore new ideas, take risks, and see successful and influential leaders emerge creatively in the community.

“We look forward to hosting the 2022 conference and are delighted to welcome a range of visitors to the region,” said Cr O’Keeffe.

“We hope everyone enjoys their stay in Greater Shepparton and can experience the many great offerings that make our area thrive.”

The 2022 Australian Local Government Women Association Vic (ALGWA Vic) State Conference takes place this Sunday 5th and Monday 6th June 2022.
