The department hosted a national networking event for LCDCs in November 2019, in line with Objective 1, Recommendation 5 in the LCDC Review.
The purpose of the event was to support LCDC members to recognise themselves as Leaders of their communities and to encourage them to collaborate fully with other Leaders as they engage with the work of their LCDC.
