Events & networking

We believe that collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and networking are essential elements for the growth and success of local government.

We host a wide range of forums and events designed to bring our council/kaunihera members together. Our aim is to foster connections, provide opportunities for learning from industry experts, and create a supportive environment that empowers and strengthens local government as a whole.

Stay tuned for our upcoming events and networking opportunities. These events are carefully curated to address your specific needs and interests — from zone and sector groups to our Young Elected Member networking group for members under 40 and our Te Maruata networking group for our Māori elected members.
