Meetings and Invitations

Members of the public can request a meeting with the Mayor, or invite the Mayor to a community event.

Arranging a meeting with the Mayor

The best way to arrange a meeting with the Mayor is to email

Your email will need to include:

  • your name
  • name of your organisation or group
  • reason you would like to meet with the Mayor
  • your contact details

The Mayor's office needs at least 2 weeks notice of your meeting.

The Mayor's office will carefully consider all meeting requests.  However sometimes it is best to talk to the Council officer who can best meet your needs.  If this is the case, you will be referred to the appropriate officer and they will follow up with the Mayor.

Inviting the Mayor to an event

The best way to invite the Mayor to your event is to email

Your email will need to include:

  • Your contact details
  • name of the event/function
  • time and date of the event
  • name of your organisation
  • reason you are inviting the Mayor, for example, to make a presentation, give a speech etc

The Mayor's office needs at least 3 weeks notice of your event.

Should the Mayor be unable to attend, your invitation will be extended to the Deputy Mayor or another Councillor.
