Forum for Women interested in standing for local government
Friday 2nd July – 4pm to 6.30pm
Atherstone Room Upper Hunter Conservatorium of Music, Bridge Street Muswellbrook
Did you know that women represent less than a third of all councillors and mayors serving on the 128 councils in NSW?
Women from all walks of life are being encouraged to put their hand up for election to help ensure local councils are representative of the communities they serve.
If you have a strong sense of community and are keen to make a difference in your local neighbourhood, then you should consider nominating for the 4 September 2021 local government elections.
Local councils are the level of government closest to the community. They provide key infrastructure, facilities and services to local residents and are integral to improving the lifestyle and amenity of local communities.
Councillors represent their local community’s needs, wants and aspirations and make important decisions on behalf of their local community.
You don’t need any formal qualifications and you will receive training, support, expenses and fees if you are elected.
There is nothing more rewarding than serving in the level of government closest to the local community.
