The Provincial Conference marks the beginning of a new term of local government and also sets the agenda for local government for the next five (5) years.

SALGA’s Provincial Conferences and the National Conference are themselves significant in the local government space as agenda setters with their institutional ability to detect the underlying current governance imperatives and political climate to shape and influence long term goals and objectives for the sector and also to take SALGA into new levels.
