Unknowing. Uncertainty. Uneasiness. Nauseating. Queasiness. These are all feelings we had at the start of this pandemic at WALGA. Well I know that I did. We were already going through organisational changes in March when things were rapidly changing.
We found ourselves swiftly relocated to our new home offices where we continued to support Local Governments with a plethora of emerging policy issues. WALGA was invited to represent Local Government concerns on a number of State Government committees and groups, as well as having many key discussions with stakeholders on ways to support the Local Government sector to enable them to assist their local communities.
WALGA staff coped well with the transition to the home environment, keeping in touch over videoconferences and the weekly staff update from the CEO. WALGA is now transitioning back to work from the office, with a commitment to maintain social distancing while also maintaining the levels of support to Local Governments. The WALGA office crab affectionately dubbed 'Crabby' has also been working from home and spreading joy amongst the Waste Team, but we all hope to be reunited with 'Crabby' in person soon!
