Elected Member Training Register

Council is committed to the professional development of its elected members to assist them in fulfilling their roles.  Elected members have a unique and challenging role.

Section 5.126(1) of the Local Government Act 1995 states, each council member must complete training in accordance with regulations within 12 months of being elected to Council.  This applies to those members elected in an ordinary election and an extra-ordinary election.

Section 5.127(2) of the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996 states, elected members must complete mandatory training titled 'Council Member Essentials' which consists of the following modules:

  1. Understanding Local Government;
  2. Serving on Council;
  3. Meeting Procedures;
  4. Conflicts of Interest; and
  5. Understanding Financial Reports and Budgets

A local government must prepare a report for each financial year on the training completed by council members in the financial year. This report is to be published on the local government's website within one month after the end of the financial year.
