  • Monday 19 June This session was cancelled due to no registrations.

  • Tuesday 20 June Are you new to council? Come along to this session and gain some new insights.

The sessions will provide an overview of Armidale Regional Council, describe the role of a councillor and explain the role of the NSW Electoral Commission and how elections are conducted.
