As well as the policy and advocacy work LGNZ undertakes, there are also many events taking part throughout the year.  The highlight is our annual conference, held this year in Christchurch on 15-17 July. We are also pleased to hold the inaugural LGNZ EXCELLENCE Awards during the conference. 

On average, every year LGNZ hosts 14 zone meetings, 11 sector meetings, six National Council meetings, frequent EquiP professional development workshops and webinars, one stakeholder function, one AGM and one annual conference.
