How you can make a difference as an Elected Member

The best way to ensure a broad range of views are considered is for
people of different ages, genders, cultures and backgrounds to step
up and make themselves heard on council.

As long as you are an Australian citizen and have lived in your council
 area for more than one month, you are eligible to nominate to become
 an Elected Member. Local business representatives and people who
own property in a council area are also eligible.

Here are 10 great reasons you may want to consider nominating for
  1. You care about what’s happening in your local community
  2. It’s a great way to develop your knowledge
  3. You want to contribute to your community
  4. You want to provide a voice for your age group/cultural group/gender
  5. You’re sick of watching from the sidelines

  7. It’s a nice addition to your CV
