The VLC Council

The VLC Council consists of up to sixty delegates elected by our members in Victoria. The VLC has elected to adopt the ten CMA regions to provide ten regions across Victoria. Each region elects up to six Council delegates to represent their region. Members in each region elect up to five volunteer landcarers and one professional landcarer to make up their six regional delegates.

More information regarding delegates can be found here

For a full understanding of the rules governing how the organisation operates read the VLC Constitution 2013
