Councillor representation on committees, peak industry bodies, community organisations and associations
In conducting the business of Council and representing Council’s interests in the wider community, Greater Dandenong City Council has formal representation and liaison with a wide number of committees, peak industry bodies and regional and community associations.
While the Mayor of the day is typically Council’s key representative, the volume of associations where Council seeks an involvement is such that representation needs to be shared among all Councillors to ensure a manageable workload.
The following link provides details of the organisations with council-appointed liaisons and representatives to committees, peak industry bodies, regional associations and community associations for the current Councillor term.
