The Western Australian Local Government Association (WALGA) held their annual Convention and Trade Exhibition on 5, 6 and 7 August 2010.
The conference operates to address and discuss areas of common interest and shared experience in Local Government in WA.
Staff from the Australian Bureau of Statistics Client Services Branch and the Census Management group operated a multi media stand. They used the opportunity to highlight the importance that small area data plays in the operation and management of Local Governments.
The ABS stand was a great success and had many people visiting it. Local government representatives took the opportunity to discuss with ABS staff the upcoming Census in 2011.
