Event overview

Queensland’s 77 local governments employ over 40,000 people, make substantial investments, deliver critical services to 4.9 million residents across the State and make decisions about the future of our cities and towns. They make a crucial contribution to Queensland’s economy and to our States economic and social development.  

As the leaders of local governments, Chief Executives operate in a complex regulatory environment and are responsible for large budgets and workforces across infrastructure, transport, utilities, education and community services.  CEDA is pleased to convene a panel of our local government Chief Executives to discuss the business of local government, the highs and lows of local, and their future forecasts for delivering on growing expectations of this tier of government.  

Gather your colleagues and guests from across sectors to hear the inside view of the business of local government and to put your questions to this panel of experienced Chief Executives.
