NGA19 preliminary program now available

The NGA19 preliminary program is now available online, with hard copies to be mailed to councils in the coming week.

This year, NGA19 is Future Focused celebrating past achievements while firmly focused on the future. The theme acknowledges that change is constant, be it digital transformation, community activism, ageing demographics, population policies or even artificial intelligence.

It is up to each and every council to understand these developments, work through the challenges, and find the best way to shape their response to their communities. The NGA this year will consider what councils can do today to get ready for the challenges, opportunities and changes that pave the path ahead.

The preliminary program outlines an exciting agenda of deep insights from nation-leading experts, inspiration from keynote speakers at the forefront of community engagement and crowd-powered communities, concurrent sessions exploring housing affordability and density pressures, and telling addresses from our leading politicians.
