Course Overview:                                                                                                                    
Changes to the laws governing conflict of interest and informal gatherings have been made. Regulations amending the Local Government (General) Regulations 2013 were promulgated on 27 October 2016. 
 
The regulations will come into operation on 24 November 2016.  From this date Councils will be required to have an informal gatherings policy which complies with requirements prescribed in the regulations.   The amended regulations also prescribe additional matters of ordinary business for Councils and introduce matters of ordinary business for Council committees and subsidiaries. 
 
The LGA in conjunction with Wallmans Lawyers is pleased to be providing training on these changes. Sessions will cover the legislative frameworks for conflict of interest and informal gatherings.  The operational consequences of the amended regulations will be discussed. 
 
In addition to the scheduled session in Adelaide (to register please see LINK below) E&T is seeking registrations of interest for similar sessions to be provided to Councils and subsidiaries (either individually or on a group basis). Training can be tailored for the particular audience. Please register your interest at the Enquire Now link below.
 
Should the demand be sufficient, E&T will bring training to your region.
