- provide professional development opportunities to councillors and officers,
- increase knowledge and capabilities across key service delivery, policy and governance areas,
- enhance collaboration between member councils, other tiers of government and affiliated organisations and stakeholders,
- provide an understanding of new and emerging services through engagement with the private sector, and
