Are you passionate about your local community and have the time and desire to make a difference? 

If the answer to this question is yes, then you may be interested in attending the Municipal Association of Victoria’s (MAV) Stand for Council session, taking place at the Lilydale Civic Centre on Thursday 9 May 2024. 

This free session, targeted at community members who are interested in running in this year’s Council Election, will provide participants information about: 

  • Local government and the important role councils play for our local communities
  • The role and responsibility of a Councillor, Mayor, Deputy Mayor and CEO 
  • The election process and candidate requirements 
  • What newly elected councillors can expect soon after the elections 
  • Councillor training and development opportunities 

Participants will also hear from a panel of current Council CEO’s, including Tammi Rose from Yarra Ranges Council, while having the opportunity to ask the panel any burning questions about what it means to be a Councillor. 

This session held in Lilydale is the first of 15 to be held around the state. The session will also be run online for those who are unable to attend in person. 

This session will be mainly targeted to potential candidates for the upcoming elections in Yarra Ranges, Knox, Manningham, Maroondah, Monash and Whitehorse. 

Please note that to attend any of the Stand for Council sessions, you will need to register.
