CEO Robyn Stevens.

With NSW councils just months from going to the ballot box, Shoalhaven Council is calling for would-be councillors to come to pre-election candidate sessions.

CEO Robyn Stevens said it was time to join Council for a candidate information session to find out all you need to know about how to register as a candidate, as well as valuable insights into what it means to be a Shoalhaven City Councillor.

Ms Stevens encouraged people interested in becoming a Councillor or the Mayor to attend a session to ensure they understand the roles and responsibilities this will entail.

“We belong to a caring and vibrant community with people who have a lot to offer the Shoalhaven and could make a valuable contribution as a democratically elected Councillor,” Ms Stevens said.

“Each session will provide an overview on the legal and ethical responsibilities, time commitments, available support and the skills required to successfully fulfil the roles of Mayor or Councillor,” she said.  

“Becoming a Councillor is a rewarding and meaningful pursuit and I invite every aspiring candidate to attend a session, whether it be in-person or online.”

The pre-election candidate sessions will take place on the following dates: Wednesday 12 June, 4pm to 8pm, Ulladulla Civic Centre (in person session) maximum 20 participants; Thursday 13 June,4pm to 8pm, Nowra Administrative Centre (in person session) maximum 20 participants; Friday 14 June, 4pm to 8pm (virtual) maximum 15 participants.

The next NSW Local Government election is on Saturday 14 September 2024.
