Structure and Governance

MAV Technology (formerly the Local Government Information and Communication Technology Group) is governed by the MAV Technology Executive Committee, which is made up of volunteer representatives from member councils, from which a chair and deputy chair is elected. The Committee makes decisions regarding MAV Technology's strategic direction; project funding and support; event co-ordination; vendor sponsorships and partnerships; engagement with State and Federal government; and advocacy for innovative and transformative ICT initiatives. The activities of MAV Technology are co-ordinated by the MAV Technology Executive Officer, who is appointed by the Committee and supported by MAV staff and services. Any member council of MAV Technology can volunteer a representative to join the MAV Technology Executive Committee. Nominations are sought annually.
