The Victorian Government is providing training for members of the Monash community who wish to nominate as a candidate in the council elections.

The training will help you understand the role and responsibilities of being a Councillor. All candidates must undertake the training in order to be eligible to nominate.

This is a new requirement, introduced in the Local Government Act 2020.
