Christmas presents writ large
Weekly column from Council Courier e-newsletter by CEO Greg Hallam, Friday, 8 December 2017.
As the year draws to a close I am in the mood to reflect on some of our brightest and boldest achievements for our membership.
The enormous return generated by Local Government Mutual Services - encompassing LGM Liability, LGM Assets and LGW Workcare – for member councils is a glittering jewel in this crown.
$750M in cash savings for members, plus $24.76M in cash dividends. It’s a magnificent contribution to our sector of government contributed by these local government owned and run schemes.
We well remember what insurance cost us as a sector 23 years ago. Combine that with what Workers Compensation premiums were 20 years ago and you can see where simple maths gets us.
That’s one hell of a Christmas present – and the gift that keeps on giving.
That’s what the LGAQ does for its members. Adds value.
Connect – Innovate – Achieve. Anything I say after this is superfluous. I’ve said it all.
