Special Interest Groups

A number of organisations including LGPro, and the IPWEA encourage the formation of and support local government related special interest groups (SIGs) and communities of practice. Many other similar groups are formed directly by Councils. They are a great way of enabling collaboration between Councils.


We'd like to use Collaboration Day to:

  • identify as many existing special interest groups as possible;
  • identify any areas of interest that aren't already covered by a special interest group, and get something happening in that area too.

The SIGs we already know about are listed below. If you belong to a SIG that isn't listed below or you are interested to set up one for a topic that isn't already covered please let us know about it by commenting on :
