Women's Network Dinner

About the Dinner

Due to the current restrictions associated with the pandemic, this year's dinner has been rescheduled to Thursday 25 November.  The event will be held at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Brunton Avenue, Richmond. 

The Women's Network Dinner is a popular event on the Local Government calendar and provides a great opportunity for women and men working at all levels to expand their networks and share ideas with colleagues in the sector. The dinner follows on from the Women's Professional Development Forum which celebrates the achievements of women in Local Government. Many Councils take the opportunity to book a full table at the dinner as reward and recognition for their staff. 

Pre-dinner drinks and entrees will be served at 6.30 and guests will be seated at 7pm. As this is a popular event and seats are limited, secure your single ticket or council table soon. For table bookings please email [email protected] and to book individual tickets, please click on the registration flyer below.
