The Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) is looking to inspire community leaders and potential candidates through the Stand for Council campaign. 

To support potential candidates, the MAV is partnering with councils across the state to host regional-based information sessions. The sessions aim to provide potential candidates with both information and inspiration.  

The MAV will also be providing a Citizen to Councillor Guide 2024 – a guide for prospective candidates to further understand the roles and responsibilities of a councillor and the importance of this elected position.  

MAV CEO, Kelly Grisby, said that the MAV Stand for Council campaign is designed to encourage and support a diverse range of candidates from across the Victorian community including first nations, and new and emerging communities. 

“If you are thinking of nominating for council as a candidate, these sessions and resources will help you to further consider the broad responsibilities of a councillor, the wide range of issues you will be required to make decisions about and the time commitment,” Ms Grigsby said. 

The MAV has locked in the details and opened registrations for a number of community and candidate sessions, with further specialised sessions to be confirmed.
