WomenCan run for Local Government

President of the Tasmanian Branch of the Australian Local Government Women’s Association (ALGWA) Alderman Debra Thurley invites more women to run as candidates in the 2018 Local Government elections to be held in October.

The Australian Local Government Women’s Association (ALGWA) has launched its latest WomenCan campaign to encourage interested women to nominate for Local Councils.

The WomenCan Campaign informs potential women candidates considering running for Local Government office via information sessions and workshops in the South, North-East and North-West. These workshops inform potential candidates on the roles and responsibilities of Local Government participation.

ALGWA can assist in furthering women’s knowledge and understanding of the functions of Local Government, introduce mentors to potential candidates and facilitate networking for like-minded women interested in participating in Local Government.
