The Auckland local elections take place later this year. These determine the local board members, councillors and mayor who will represent Auckland for the next three years.
If you’re thinking about standing for council – or know someone who is – this virtual information offers a unique opportunity to find out everything you need to know ahead of nominations opening on 19 July.
The interactive session will involve a panel of five experts, including two former elected members, discussing a range of election topics and answering live questions from an online audience.
Topics include how to become a candidate, how to campaign, handling of donations, and the roles and responsibilities of elected members.
The session will be hosted by Councillor Support Team Leader Tamsyn Matchett and will be available on the voteauckland.co.nz website after the live stream ends.
