Plotting our digital future
Since it was established in 1999, the LGAQ's flagship web and digital services offering to Queensland local governments has ridden the wave of constant change introduced by the digital age.
Since inception, the LGAQ has continued to refine its services to keep pace with what Queensland communities want. Increasingly, this means building the capacity and capability of local governments to keep pace with the expanding presence of digital services in the day-to-day lives of their community members.
The role of digital communication in government, particularly local government, has never been more important. Today, councils need to create compelling content, capture and evaluate their data, understand audiences and blend marketing with new social and engagement platforms to listen and respond to their communities.
Most importantly, councils need to communicate regularly and transparently with their stakeholders.
Today, the LGAQ hosts the majority of the local government sector’s websites, as well as providing services to support traditional communications functions and an ever-growing capability in new media and big data analytics.
The LGAQ's digital services and communications operations are converging to bring targeted, specialised services and support to all councils across Queensland, as well as peer-to-peer sharing of resources and knowledge.
Our investment into bringing your council the best available digital tools will be met by tailored services exclusively available to Queensland local government. These services will align with our sector-wide initiatives like LG Sherlock and new catalogue of events.
Ultimately, all of our endeavours are about making sure LGAQ members have access to the best possible tools, services and insights to continue doing the best job they can serving their community. We truly believe in the slogan Better Councils, Better Communities.
Our new digital future for our members starts today.
