Victorian Local Governance Association Board Elections 2017
Nomination for VLGA Ordinary Board Member (Non-Councillor)
I am a skilled communicator with experience in the local government sector, having worked as Communications Manager at the VLGA and in communications at Maribyrnong City Council - along with several roles across State and Federal Departments.
My current role at VCOSS includes the development of an online Good Governance Health Check for the community service sector.
As an active participant in community life, I served on Moreland’s Reconciliation and Arts Advisory Committees.
Committed to democracy, community participation and diverse representation, I initiated the VLGA’s Rainbow Working Group and remain an active member. I also established a successful awards program in partnership with environmental, Aboriginal and youth peak bodies.
I would like to see the Board prioritise a strategic approach to raising the VLGA’s profile and increasing engagement with members.
I strongly support the VLGA’s founding values and hope to add my considerable skills and experience to the new Board.
