About this event

This event provides the opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from other Chief Executives about the unique demands of managing at the highest level in local government. There is an opportunity for 'CE only time' where you can share with your fellow chief executives’ items that are top-of-mind in a confidential environment.

Attending the event will also give you the opportunity to help us celebrate and recognise the very best in local government management as this Forum is being run on the same day as our annual Gala Dinner. The Gala Dinner pre-dinner drinks start at 6.00pm, tickets can be purchased here.

This event is for local government chief executives only.
