Professional Development Bundles

Professional Development Bundles provide learning and development opportunities for your staff through membership with Local Government Professionals, NSW.
Designed as a reward and recognition tool, Professional Development Bundles provide council with the opportunity to reward up-and-coming staff with the benefits of membership, and allocate training and conference attendance across the team in line with your learning and development plans. Each package includes a number of individual memberships and next gen memberships for you to assign, as well as a credit to put towards training, conferences or programs run by LG Professionals, NSW.

Please note: prices above are not inclusive of GST.


Individual Membership can be awarded to anyone at council who satisfy the eligibility for membership as outlined in the association’s Membership Policy. Members allocated under the Professional Development Bundle will receive all benefits as outlined for Individual Members under the Membership Policy. 

Next Gen Membership is as above, however this membership is to be provided to members under the age of 35 years.

Should a nominated member under your bundle leave council during the term of the bundle, council is free to re-allocate that membership to another staff member, however their membership will expire in line with the renewal date of the bundle.

Professional Development Credit

Council will be provided with a credit to the value indicated on the chosen bundle, which can be put towards any professional development activity offered by us, subject to event terms and conditions.
