The Sunlight Series - Registration Form

The Sunlight Series is a collaboration between Australia?s best known transparency advocate, Stephen Mayne, and Our Community, the leading provider of governance programs for Australian not-for-profit organisations. Stephen cut his teeth during what he describes as ?a four-year governance nightmare? as a councillor at the City of Manningham, experience he applied as a governance reformer during a four-year stint on the City of Melbourne.

Stephen strongly believes that ?sunlight is the best disinfectant?. As a City of Melbourne councillor, he chaired the finance and governance committee and leveraged a balance of power situation into Australia?s most comprehensive governance reform program. During his eight-year stint as a councillor, Stephen was invited to speak on governance and transparency issues by councils and local government peak bodies across Australia.
