Induction to Local Government

Local Government is very different to the corporate world. Does any other industry have a body elected from the community that has the final say on many issues? Does any other industry have such a wide range of responsibilities through cats, dogs, community services, aged persons, libraries, roads, swimming pools (public and private) etc etc? Does any other industry have such a vast array of Federal and State legislation imposed upon it? 

The LG Professionals WA Induction to Local Government workshop will provide you with a greater understanding of local government in WA.

Participants will learn about a diverse range of topics and issues including:

   • Local Government Decision Making
   • The role of council
   • Relationships between elected members and staff
   • Local Government Finance
   • Ethical Behaviour in Local Government
     ...and many more!

The workshop is invaluable for a wide range of people, including employees new to local government, experienced local government employees seeking a refresher on local government trends, best practices and current information, and local government service providers.

The workshop is presented in an informative and entertaining manner by Bob Searle and Steven Tweedie both of whom have considerable experience in the Local Government Industry.

The workshop is held regularly at locations around WA, we can even arrange a session at your local government - contact LG Professionals WA.  for more information. (*Minimum numbers required, terms and conditions apply)

A must-attend workshop to set the foundations of your local government career, so don't delay register now!
