The Local Government Authorised Persons Association Inc. has developed and grown through a lot of hard work by its members. The professional frame work, training, development opportunities and annual seminars showcase the abilities of members and the complexity of the roles Local Government Authorised People fulfill.

Local Government is taking notice of the APA’s advances and officers are being recognised as skilled and motivated people who can interpret and administer multiple Acts and Regulations covering multiple tasks across a wide variety of tasks.


The objectives of the APA are:

  • To promote knowledge of and interest in regulatory services within the local government sector
  • To encourage and facilitate professional development of members
  • To deal cooperatively with the local councils and facilitate the sharing of information and resources, and standardising work practices
  • To facilitate and promote accredited training workshops, forums and conferences, and encourage community education in regulatory services
  • Actively seek membership from all councils within South Australia
Members who attend regular meetings and training sessions that deal with topics that concern us all in our work environment will tell you that the APA works to grow your knowledge and skills in dealing with every day tasks.
