|The SA Local Government Supervisory Officers' Association.|
|The South Australia Local
Government Supervisory Officers' Association was started by a small group of
dedicated Local Government Supervisors in 1975.
In the early days of the association, meetings were held at various locations, usually at a council depot or similar. The association grew in popularity in the eighties as the benefit of membership was realised. The networking opportunities for supervisory officers were extremely beneficial and the social aspect of membership was the basis for many long term friendships being formed. The association membership took a dramatic fall in membership due mainly to council amalgamations during the late nineties. The association went into recession for about four years but with the amalgamations long behind now have a strong membership once again.
The Annual Study Tour
which started in 1994 was a very successful event within the association for
some 23 years, with visits to facilities such as
Olympic Dam mining, Electricity Power transmission plant at Port Augusta, Major
highway reconstruction in Mildura and Water pumping station at Mannum, Open-Cut
mining at Leigh Creek and a vehicle assembly plant in Melbourne to name
just a few.
The Association is not a Union or Industrial Association. The Association raises funds by subscriptions from annual membership. This amount is set at $50.00 for the current financial year for Members, and $250.00 for Associates. The association is a non profit organisation. Those people eligible for membership are officers of Local Government who carry out the duties of Management and Supervision of Works Programs, and those officers now retired from Local Government if they so desire. Associate Membership is made up of representatives of public authorities and organisations, business houses or those persons whose interests are connected with the work of the Association.
Affiliate Membership is made
up of South Australian Supervisory Officers who convene and meet from
time to time on a regional or area basis.
The Associate Committee Members are
elected at the Annual General Meeting by the Associate Members in accordance
with the constitution. One member being from a trade supply background, and
the other being from a trade contracting background.
