Mock Council Meeting For Would Be Councillors
The City of Kalamunda is encouraging anyone with an interest in Council business to come along and see what it is like to be a Councillor.
To provide a better understanding of what it means to be a Councillor, including what happens at Council meetings, the City is hosting a free ‘mock’ Councillor seminar on Wednesday, 28 August from 5.30pm to 8pm at Council Chambers, 2 Railway Road, Kalamunda.
CEO Rhonda Hardy said, “The Mock Council Meeting was first held in 2017, and we understand it was one of the first of its kind in our state.”
“Feedback from the community was extremely positive, with residents and ratepayers having the chance to see what it was like to be in a Council meeting, utilising the Standing Orders and making decisions.”
City of Kalamunda CEO Rhonda Hardy said joining the Council is one of the most rewarding ways to make a difference to the local community.
“Anyone thinking of nominating should come along to our ‘mock’ meeting and sit in the Council Chambers while getting to know more about being a Councillor and the steps to nominating and navigating the election process.”
To attend the 28 August ‘mock’ Council Meeting, please RSVP (essential) by 5pm Monday 26 August via 9257 9956.
Nominations will open for the elections on 5 September 2019.
