By virtue of capital city status the Lord Mayor has a place on the LGAT General Management Committee (GMC) while the remaining positions are elected from three regional areas (North, West/North-West and South). The role of the GMC is set out in the Rules of Association.
The GMC is chaired by the LGAT President who is elected by all member Councils.
Elections for the General Management Committee are undertaken during January in every year following ordinary council elections. The Tasmanian Electoral Commissioner is the Returning Officer for the election. Nominees for the office of president must be councillor or alderman.
At its first meeting following the annual general meeting, the General Management Committee elects one of its members to be the vice-president. Click here for the list of GMC members.
