Councillor Roles and Responsibilities

We provide a range of nationally recognised qualifications (local government specific) and council-specific non-accredited short courses as well as other professional development training options.

  • Function and scope of elected members
  • Protocols to ensure legislative requirements are observed
  • Meeting procedures
  • Good decision making
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Leadership
