Australian Local Government Association

  • Sustaining local roads, transport and other infrastructure
  • Improving natural and built environmental outcomes
  • Enhancing regional equity and regional development
  • Building capacity and sustainability in local communities
  • Connecting member associations and the Local Government sector
  • Engaging effectively in Australian Government processes

As one of Australia's three spheres of government, local government is represented by ALGA's President on the Council of Australian Governments (COAG). This peak government body brings together the Prime Minister, state premiers, territory chief ministers and the ALGA President to develop responses to issues of concern to all three spheres of government.

ALGA was founded in 1947 and, in 1976, established a secretariat in Canberra reflecting growing links with the Australian Government and an awareness of local government's emerging national role.

The Association's policies are determined by the ALGA Board, consisting of two representatives from each of the member associations and two from the ACT Government.

ALGA's leadership team comprises the President and two Vice Presidents. The secretariat is managed by the Chief Executive. The President of ALGA, Cr Genia McCaffery North Sydney Council, also sits on the Council of Australian Governments and the Australian Council of Local Government.
