Local Government Forum 2022

Bartier Perry is proud to present our 2022 Local Government Forum on Tuesday 16 August at the ParkRoyal Parramatta.

Bringing together NSW local councils, we invite you to attend our half day event as you network and share ideas with your fellow local government colleagues.

We all understand that a key focus for local councils is planning for the future needs of their communities. With so much change over the past couple of years in the way we live, work and do business, what will those future needs be? How can we ensure that our plans will minimise risk and maximise opportunities, all while remaining flexible enough to respond to sudden changes

Our guest presenters The Hon. Rob Stokes MP and Shane Fitzsimmons AO ASFM will each provide their insights and our own Bartier Perry partners will explore topics including managing ill and injured workers, issues influencing the project development lifecycle, modern slavery, defamation and more.

We hope you can join us for this free, in-depth forum on the major issues facing local government, and approaches for successfully managing them.
