Why work for us
The Municipal Association of Victoria is the peak representative and lobbying body for Victoria's 79 councils. The MAV was formed in 1879 and the Municipal Association Act 1907 appointed the MAV the official voice of local government in Victoria.
Today, the MAV is a driving and influential force behind a strong and strategically positioned local government sector. Our role is to represent and advocate the interests of local government, lobby for a 'fairer deal' for councils, raise the sector's profile, ensure its long-term security and provide policy advice, strategic advice, capacity building programs and insurance services to local government.
Our motto is "pro bono publico" – For the public good. Through our activities we improve the lives of all Victorians.
You can help us in our valuable work.
