Module 4 - Financial Management and Reporting

Duration: 3 hours (9.30am-12.30pm)
Delivery Options: Face to face or webinar 
For: Elected Members and council staff

Session Overview:
‘Financial Management and Reporting’ is the fourth 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 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 explores the responsibilities of good financial governance for Council and elected members. In this session elected members will gain a better understanding of their leadership role in long term financial and asset management planning, setting rates and monitoring budgets.
