Local Government Mayoral Advisory Panel 2018

The Minister for Local Government recently invited all Mayors to express an interest in being appointed to the 2018 Local Government Mayoral Advisory Panel (LGMAP).

The deadline for applications was 29 March 2018 and the application process has now closed.

All applicants and the local government sector will be notified of the outcome of the expression of interest process following consideration of applications, and the selection of members by the Minister for Local Government.

As in previous years, the Mayors appointed to the panel will be selected based on their individual experience to provide advice to the Minister for Local Government on a broad range of topics relevant to the local government sector, rather than representing their council or region.  To ensure diversity of views, regard will be given to geographic location, gender and experience.

Meetings scheduled for 2018 are 30 May, 18 July and 12 September.

LGMAP's terms of reference (PDF, 42.6 KB) (accessible version) (DOCX, 45.4 KB) specifies the role for LGMAP members to provide high level advice on a range of legislative, regulatory, strategic and policy decisions which impact on local government.
