This training is essential for authorised persons who are working with the public and ensures they have the appropriate knowledge and skills to enable them to safely, effectively and professionally engage and interact with members of the public. 
This training is only $200 and there are strictly limited spaces. To book please visit the event page http://lgapa.com.au/event-4154104


Each year we hold the annual Authorised Persons' Association Annual Awards. These awards are always a highlight of the seminar as they are an opportunity for management and teammates to recognise and reward the excellent work happening in the regulatory world. The awards are presented at the seminar dinner at the Stamford Grand on the evening of the 20 May 2021.  

The awards to be presented are:
South Australian Animal Management Officer of the Year
New Regulatory Services Officer's Award
Excellence in Regulatory Services

The award criteria and nomination form can be found here. Nominations close at 5pm on Friday 7 May 2021. Take time form your day to reflect on the projects, investigations, and initiatives your team have achieved this year. Do you have a new or experienced team member who continually excels? Please make sure you nominate an officer or team from your Council for an award. In addition to the recognition the winners will receive across the industry there are some great prizes on offer!!

Importantly, many of our previous State winners of the Animal Management Officer of the Year award have gone on to win the National award, which is great promotion for Local Government in South Australia.
