The Association of Local Government Information Managers (ALGIM) is a not-for-profit registered charity that was initially founded in 1975 by an enthusiastic group of EDP Managers known as the Information Technology Management Group (ITMG), which was part of the New Zealand Local Government Association (NZLGA). In 1995 ITMG became independent of the NZLGA. As a result the Association of Local Government Information Management was officially established on July 1 1996. The inaugural meeting of ALGIM was held on 22 - 23 April 1996.
ALGIM provides professional development and thought leadership across a range of local government professions. Their roots are in ICT, but over the years they've expanded to encompass the traditional IT roles, IT infrastructure, web and digital, information and records management, customer service, and GIS. Through the three high-calibre conferences, training academy, scholarships, awards, and networking, they provide dozens of options for further training, education and professional development. They also offer thought leadership to the local government sector through best practice toolkits, advocacy, research, auditing and mystery shops, and shared services.
Their vision is a digitally transformed local government sector and their mission is bringing people and technology together to deliver better services.
The ALGIM Local Government Cybersecurity Improvement Programme is powered by SAM for Compliance and SAM for Compliance Ltd works in partnership with ALGIM to support and deliver this programme.
Jackie Krzyzewski was on the ALGIM Board for almost ten years and held the office of President in 2000.
