Who We Are

LGAT is the peak body for Local Government in Tasmania and is part of a national network of associations. It is funded by councils and other income earned through projects sponsored on behalf of Local Government, and a range of services and sponsorships.

A General Management Committee (GMC) of eight members provides oversight to LGAT operations. The GMC is elected by LGAT member council representatives every two years. It comprises the popularly elected president, the Lord Mayor and six other members elected by regional groupings of councils. The vice president is elected by the GMC. The term of the current GMC will expire in 2012.

Founded in 1911, the Local Government Association of Tasmania is an incorporated body under the Local Government Act 1993.

The objectives of LGAT are to:

  • promote the efficient administration and operation of Local Government in the State of Tasmania
  • represent and protect the interests, rights and privileges of members of LGAT
  • foster and promote relationships between Local Government in Tasmania and with the government of Tasmania and the Commonwealth of Australia
  • provide support services to members of LGAT.
