Annual Conference program and registration are here!

Thursday, 25 July 2019

Cairns is proud to host this annual event at the Cairns Convention Centre, 14-16 October, providing a forum through which councils can share their ideas, challenges and achievements – all in the interests of serving our communities better. 

This year’s conference theme 'Taking it to the Streets' says it all.

While for some, it conjures up memories of the Doobie Brothers hit song of the mid 1970s, it is also reflective of a common denominator in local government.

In one way or another, much of what we do is linked to a street or road, sealed or otherwise.

It also demonstrates the importance of taking our message to our communities - reinforcing the importance of their council to community liveability and prosperity.

This year we have some great speakers for you. Our keynote speaker, Professor Bela Stantic, the 'Nostradamus of the 21st Century', is one of the most sought after speakers in the world today.

We will also hear from the CEO of the Australian Road Research Board on what the streets and roads of the future will look like, not to mention our minister and shadow minister, a great panel session on life after Belcarra, the ever popular Council Showcase session, council segment breakout sessions and the always popular motivational speakers to end the days.
