The Annual Conference is attended by LGNSW member organisations and is considered the supreme policy-making body of LGNSW. It is also an opportunity for councillors to come together to share ideas and debate issues that shape the way that LGNSW is governed.

Each year, LGNSW members are invited to submit motions for possible debate at the Annual Conference. A motion that is endorsed at the Annual Conference by a majority of voting delegates becomes a resolution.

Motion open dates

Each year, LGNSW begins accepting motions about four months before the date of Conference. The latest motions can be accepted by LGNSW for inclusion in the Conference Business Paper is about one month before the conference.

What happens to endorsed motions?

After each conference, LGNSW reviews the endorsed motions (now resolutions) and amends the Fundamental Principles and Position Statements as required.

As LGNSW undertakes advocacy actions on each of the conference resolutions throughout the year, these actions and their outcomes will be published on the LGNSW website in an Action Report.
