The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) is hosting a free forum for people with disability who may be interested in nominating for local government council this year, or in future elections.

Topics will include:
  • local government election process
  • campaign tips and potential pitfalls
  • support, resources, workplace adjustments and accessibility.

The session will include time for attendees to ask the panel questions or address specific feedback!

There will be options to interact and ask the panel questions online and in-person during the question and answer session.
