Annual Conference

Registration now open!

Registration is now open for the 42nd LGFP Annual Conference being held at the Pullman Cairns International from 22 – 25 November 2022. See our dedicated conference website ( for more information including the conference brochure, full conference program and registration links.

This year’s conference theme is “There’s Nothing New about the New Normal”. The LGFP Committee has reflected on recent media comments and articles regarding the ‘new normal’ in the context of the current global pandemic, and that for local governments in particular dealing with adversity, constant change and evolving local, regional and national dynamics is something we have grown accustomed to. How our councils have adapted and are now coping with the recent pandemic and local and global economic challenges reflects the resilience and flexibility that the sector has shown for a number of years, but it doesn’t come without its challenges.

This year’s conference program will explore this theme further through a number of technical and personal development sessions, presentations from our partners in government and business, and a panel session where members will share how they are evolving their budgeting processes.
