Did you know that women represent less than a third of all councillors and mayors serving on the 128 councils in NSW? Help us change this statistic by attending a women's candidate forum at the Armidale Council Chambers this Saturday 22 May.
The forum is being conducted by the NSW branch of the Australian Local Government Women's Association and will include a welcome and introduction from Council's General Manager James Roncon followed by a presentation from ALGWA President Cassandra Coleman.
Attendees will then be able to participate in a Q&A session with local and visiting councillors. The panel members include Armidale Regional Councillors Margaret O’Connor and Dorothy Robinson, plus Inverell Shire Councillor Di Baker, Fairfield City Councillor Sera Yilmaz and Lithgow City Councillor Cass Coleman.
If you want to make a difference in your community and ensure women's voices are represented, do not miss this free event.
WHEN: Saturday 22 May, from 10am (approximately three hours)
WHERE: Armidale Council Chambers, 135 Rusden Street
