Active Women in North East local government

Tuesday, 10 April, 2018

The Australian Local Government Women’s Association (ALGWA) North East Network recently held one of their triannual meetings at Strathbogie Shire Council Chambers.

The group get together to network, share ideas, achievements and learnings with one another.

The North East ALGWA Network was established over 10 years ago and is now one of the only regional networks still operating.

Chair and Mansfield Shire Councillor Marg Attley has been involved with the group since its formation and said its longevity is a testament to the amount of active women in North East local government.

“There is some great work being done by women in local government and this group is really beneficial for support and mentorship,” Cr Attley said.

At the recent meeting, Strathbogie shared their Bogie Bulk Buy success story, which has seen nearly 500kW of solar installed at over 90 households and businesses in one of the country’s fastest growing solar bulk buy programs.
