CABSE membership is open to all Victorian councils.

CASBE Steering Committee

CASBE is driven by our member councils. Each member council holds a position on the CASBE Steering Committee, which meets three times a year.

Scroll down to see a complete list of our members.

The Steering Committee is the decision making forum for the alliance, guiding the development and implementation of the strategic plan and CASBE’s key projects. CASBE is a highly collaborative, grass roots association committed to facilitating strong local government partnerships and the delivery of practical and effective projects.

To become a member of CASBE

To become a member of CASBE, councils sign the CASBE Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV), effective for a three-year period. New councils sign on to the remainder of that three-year period. The current MoU period expires 30 June 2023.


Please note, a council must be a CASBE member to subscribe to the BESS tool. A separate fee is applicable for a BESS subscription. BESS subscription enables industry use of BESS in your municipality.

CASBE Network meetings

CASBE Network meetings are held every two months and are open to staff from all Victorian councils.

These forums provide an opportunity for councils to share experiences, learn about CASBE and contribute to CASBE programs and initiatives. Short presentations from key industry stakeholders are generally included at each meeting.

Please contact to join our Network list.

Working groups

CASBE supports a number of working groups which meet in addition to and outside of Network meetings. The working groups focus on specific tasks or topics, such as.

  • ESD Local Planning Policy Group – for councils pursuing a local ESD Policy
  • Referrals Working Group – for council ESD Officers
  • BESS Governance Board

We also communicate through the CASBE Yammer page, a private forum for council officers to share ideas and collaborate.

Please contact to join the CASBE Yammer group.
