The Board of the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) has appointed its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), who is commencing the role at the end of August. 

Selected from an impressive pool of candidates, Amy Crawford has been named as ALGA’s new CEO. 

Most recently employed as a senior advisor to the Federal Local Government Minister, Kristy McBain, Crawford carries extensive experience and is expected to start on 28 August. 

ALGA President Councillor, Linda Scott, said Ms Crawford was selected from a strong field and congratulated her on the appointment of CEO. 

“I am delighted to welcome Amy Crawford as ALGA’s next CEO. She brings a wealth of experience to the organisation, including more than twenty years working for the Federal Public Service,” Cr Scott said.

“Ms Crawford has a clear understanding of ALGA’s role, and the opportunities to work creatively and collaboratively with the Federal Government for the benefit of councils and our Communities.”

Ms Crawford said she was honoured to accept the position and was looking forward to working alongside the organisation’s board and member associations who represent 537 Australian councils.

“I have always admired the drive of local governments to deliver for their communities and I look forward to using my knowledge of cross-government programs and negotiations to deliver for members,”  Ms Crawford said.
