Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) will be holding its annual Conference and EXCELLENCE Awards  from 15 - 17 July 2018 in Christchurch.

Taking place in the heart of Christchurch’s arts precinct, the conference will be held in the auditorium and historical buildings in and around Christ’s College. We are expecting 550-600 delegates – including mayors, chairs, councillors, chief executives and senior management from councils around New Zealand. As in previous years, we also expect a high attendance from senior central government officials, business leaders and other local government sector stakeholders.

The theme of the 2018 conference is "We are firmly focused on the future: Future-proofing for a prosperous and vibrant New Zealand". The local government sector is focused on leadership and addressing the challenges facing New Zealand and its communities including climate change, sustainability, localism, and the health and wellbeing of our communities.
