New dates announced for 2023 NGA

The 2023 National General Assembly of Local Government (NGA) – incorporating the Regional Cooperation and Development Forum – will be held from 13-15 June in Canberra. 

This year’s NGA at the National Convention Centre is expected to be the biggest yet and the program is being developed to feature a wide range of high profile and engaging speakers, leaders and presenters. 

ALGA continues to work closely with the Federal Government towards incorporating the return of the Australian Council of Local Government (ACLG) as part of the event.  Stay tuned for further details in the coming weeks. 

The theme for the 2023 NGA will be “Our Communities, Our Future”.  We are looking for ideas for new federal programs and policies that would support councils to build stronger communities in the future. 

ALGA has produced a discussion paper outlining the criteria that NGA motions must meet which can be downloaded here. 

Motions are due to ALGA by Friday 24 March and can be submitted at
