Annual Conference and Dinner

The MAV's Annual Conference is renowned as a Victorian local government premier event and networking opportunity for Mayors, Councillors, CEO’s, Executives and Senior Officers.

Our 2022 Annual Conference explored the theme ‘Transcending Boundaries – A Bold New Era’, it reflected on the significant disruption faced by councils as they dealt with a range of issues including population change, economic recovery, budget constraints, financial sustainability, climate action, circular economy, and rising demands and expectation on services. The conference explored the role of leaders in embracing change and disruption, turning challenges into opportunities, and moving forward positively into a new reality.
