If you are thinking about running as a candidate in this year's local government elections, this workshop will provide information that will help you.

The sessions will provide community members and prospective candidates with information about the role and purpose of local government and the role, responsibilities and expectations of a councillor, and the electoral process. 

They will include the following information: 

  • The role and purpose of local government;
  • The new Local Government Act 2020;
  • Introduction to your council and information on the municipal area (presented Moreland’s CEO);
  • Roles, responsibilities and expectations of a councillor (planned to be presented by a visiting CEO);
  • The experience of being a councillor; and
  • The electoral process and campaigning including key dates and information provided by the Victorian Electoral Commission
