He has served in that role each year since 2009.
At the annual meeting on Friday at the Naracoorte Town Hall, Kingston mayor Evan Flint was also re-elected as SELGA vice-president.
Mayor Vickery thanked the delegates for renewing their confidence in his leadership.
“SELGA plays an important role in development of the region, and we look forward to continuing and building upon the good work the organisation has done in the past,” he said.
“The cooperative model of councils working together regionally is more important than ever.”
SELGA represents the interests of the seven constituent councils in the Limestone Coast region at a State and national level. It also has a coordinating role, facilitating cooperation between its members for mutual benefit.
“SELGA is currently reviewing its strategic direction to ensure that the association continues to be a highly effective advocate for the region on priority issues,” Mr Vickery said.
“There is significant strength in local councils coming together to act for the benefit of the SE region.”
SELGA is active in driving regional development through involvement in many local community and semi-government organisations.
Delegates to these external bodies were also elected at Friday’s SELGA annual meeting.
