"Building Tomorrow’s ICT Foundations Today"

Welcome to the ALGIM website, your number one online tool for information and resources designed to support best practice within local government ICT.

    • developing tools and resources that not only assist council ICT managers throughout New Zealand with day-to-day operations, but also keep you abreast of international ICT developments and opportunities
    • providing a forum for networking, education and information sharing – particularly through the Annual ALGIM Conference and a yearly nationwide symposium programme
