Buloke Shire mayor Carolyn Stewart has been appointed to the Local Government Mayoral Advisory Panel.
Cr Stewart will join 14 other local council mayors for four meetings chaired by Minister for Local Government Adem Somyurek.
Macedon Ranges Shire Council mayor Janet Pearce was also appointed to this year's panel.
The panel aims to provide high level advice to the minister on legislative, regulatory, strategic and policy decisions which impact on local government.
Cr Stewart is in her second term as Buloke mayor.
"It is an excellent opportunity to give a voice to Buloke in key issues and ensure the liveability and amenity of small rural shires is advanced," she said.
The panel will have its first meeting on February 26.
