Lismore Council.

With the delayed Local Government elections being held in September, several councils, including Lismore City Council, are holding information sessions for community members who are thinking about running for Council.

Mayor Vanessa Ekins said that Council want to encourage people from a diverse background to run in September so the new Council reflect the diversity of our community.

‘These information sessions will be invaluable for prospective Councillors. They are designed to let candidates know what their role would be, the amount of time they will need to dedicate to Council business, how Council operates and much more.

Council meetings fun and informative

Mayor Ekins said she is also urging people interested in how our community runs to attend Council meetings. ‘They are fun and informative and held at Council Chambers on the first Tuesday of the month from 6pm. This is an easy way to learn about debating, meeting procedure and local issues.

‘I hope to see you in the public gallery over the next six months.’

The Lismore session is designed for the entire community. It will be held at the Lismore Regional Gallery on Thursday, 25 March from 5.30pm to 8.30pm.
