Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government

The Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government (ACELG) was created by the Federal Government to promote best practice, innovation and professionalism in local government.

The Centre will be based at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), as part of a consortium that includes the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG), University of Canberra, Local Government Managers Australia and the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia.

The Centre will work with stakeholders to:

  • showcase outstanding examples of innovation and best practice;
  • deliver training and development including leadership programs; and
  • stimulate debate on critical issues facing local government.
