In 2016 WALGA began presenting a range of interactive and sector relevant webinars specifically developed for the Local Government sector.

Not only do Webinars allow you to hear from sector experts on topical issues affecting your Local Government, but they also allow you to interact with your colleagues from around the State without spending time and money travelling to a specific location.

Webinars will be announced throughout the year in response to the dynamic Local Government landscape, so make sure you regularly check this page to see the latest we have on offer. Alternatively you can subscribe to our monthly Training eNews publication and have webinar notifications delivered direct to your email address.
