2020 Local Government Mayoral Advisory Panel

In December, the Minister for Local Government wrote to all mayors advising them of the opportunity to express an interest in being appointed to the 2020 Local Government Mayoral Advisory Panel (LGMAP). The panel will provide advice to the Minister on a broad range of topics relevant to the local government sector. Meetings of the 2020 LGMAP are scheduled for 26 February, 13 May, 15 July and 23 September.

LGMAP's terms of reference 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.

As in previous years, mayors appointed to the panel will be selected based on their individual experience rather than representing their council or region. To ensure diversity of views, regard will be given to geographic location, gender and experience.

Please note that the expression of interest process for the 2020 LGMAP closed on 22 December 2019. Applications are now being considered.
