LGIS Board visit Geraldton

Thursday, 3 December 2020

Every year, the LGIS Board of Directors head out to one of our regional members, to see firsthand the excellent services and facilities local governments provide to their communities.

In 2020, the Board visited the City of Greater Geraldton, and were pleased to join Mayor Shane Van Styn, along with Ross McKim (CEO), Brodie Pearce (Manager Corporate Compliance and Safety), and Fred Block (Acting Coordinator Events and Venues) for a tour of key local attractions. These included those pictured (clockwise), the Aquarena (Waterwise winner), the Sydney memorial, and the Council owned and operated Queens Park Theatre.

The Board was thrilled to be joined by nearly 40 guests, elected members and local government executives from eight surrounding local governments, and our hosts the City of Greater Geraldton for a member function.
