Our policy priorities are driven by our members. A yearly Annual Conference determines the key advocacy priorities for the sector – every council vote counts. The LGAQ Policy Executive make high-level strategic decisions during the year, and our staff meet frequently with ministers, directors-general and senior bureaucrats at state and federal levels to lobby for Queensland councils.
