"ROCIT 2013" Reform – Opportunities & Challenges for IT in Local Government
Emerging technology and changes in IT are dramatically changing the way people do business. How do local governments prepare for the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities?
IT affects the whole organisation and responding to the challenges requires collaboration across all teams, starting with the CEO.
The first LGMA Local Government Information Technology conference will be held 13-14 June 2013 at the Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle and will address the top IT issues.
The LGMA Ambrose Golf Championship is proving to be a very successful annual event. The 2013 Championship was held last Monday 25th February and was again enjoyed by all who attended.
LGMA congratulates the team from the City of Joondalup, Mike Smith and Mark McCrory who were the 2013 Champions (pictured below).
Have you nominated for the 2013 LGMA Finance Awards?

There are two levels - High Achievers Award and the Rising Star Finance Professional Award.
Nominees can nominate themselves, however it should be endorsed by their Director or Manager.
