Capable Councils – post election workshops

  • Date:

    3 October - 24 October 2017

  • Location:

    Across NSW

LGNSW is offering an opportunity for the new team of councillors to come together with their executive to reflect on, discuss and plan the success of the new council term.

We are hosting free, informal workshops in relevant regions to discuss the skills, knowledge and capabilities that are needed in order to do the job well and achieve results. We will also provide an overview of statutory milestones, good practice ideas and relevant LGNSW advocacy and support under the following themes:

  • Starting with stability
  • Adopting a strategic approach
  • Being effective and getting things done
  • Developing your capabilities
  • Regional and state collaboration; and
  • Community leadership.

These workshops are for mayors, councillors and senior staff from recently elected councils. Facilitators will include representatives from the LGNSW Senior Management Team as well as the LGNSW Mayoral Mentors.
