2022 LGNZ Conference

The 2022 LGNZ annual conference and EXCELLENCE Awards were held in Palmerston North from 20-22 July.

Te Wā Heke Mai. The Future explored not just what’s possible for the future of local government, but how the sector can embrace the power of localism to deliver nationally.

Over 600 delegates attended, including mayors, chairs, chief executives, councillors and senior management from New Zealand's councils, along with key players from the private sector, business, government and non government agencies.


The LGNZ EXCELLENCE Awards recognise and celebrate councils that punch above their weight to promote and grow the wellbeing of their communities.

The awards are judged on a combination of criteria, incorporating best practice and components from the CouncilMARK™ excellence programme's four priority areas.
