Elected members and council staff
‘Legal Responsibilities’ is the second module in a series of four modules that constitute South Australia’s Council Member mandatory training requirements.
The LGA’s ‘Training Standards for Council Members’
is the minimum training requirement for South Australian council members.
Every newly elected council member must meet these requirements within the first 12 months of their four year term. The Standard also recommends that continuing members complete refresher training in Module 2: Legal Responsibilities (which will include the nature of the latest legislative changes) and Module 4: Financial Management and Reporting to ensure competency.
This module will explore elected members’ legal roles and responsibilities and the pitfalls of non-compliance through ‘real life’ example case studies.
