The well attended Greater Hume Network event ran at Holbrook in May. With travelling times greater in some regions, LGP appreciates the effort made by the representing staff from all of the eight councils.
The day was opened by Luke Kenny, CEO of LGP and Evelyn Arnold, GM Greater Hume Council, both provided insightful updates and set the platform for the day. LGP staff shared knowledge on topics of relevance to council which included, Risk when Recovering from Natural Disasters, Engineering Works & Mobility: a simple way to procure, Best Practice in Supplier Relationship Management and Supply Chain Risks and Mitigation. With the supply chain stretched and rising costs occurring, Vicki Sweeney, Head of SME sales at Origin energy supplied a timely energy market update. Regular legal speakers Victoria Yang, LGP Legal highlighted insurance requirements for Tenders. Lou Stojanovski, Keystone Lawyers outlined the importance of Person Property Securities Register (PPSR). Lastly LGP has been fortunate to have the office of the NSW Anti-slavery Commission provide an important update on Modern Slavery, on this occasion Victoria Gordon, Senior Legal Policy Officer travelled for the event.
The agenda topics was taken to our 1st June event in Dubbo, held at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo. It’s Sydney’s turn in July, then on the road again to Goulburn and Port Macquarie in August.
For those who are new to council, the day is an opportunity to receive a greater understanding of the wider council environment, meet other council staff who are in similar roles and provides a space to ask questions. For those who regularly attend, we welcome you back and look forward to seeing you’; the agenda keeps on progressing with key topics presented on.
