Module 3 – Council & Committee Meetings

Duration: Half Day 
Investment: $385 incl GST
Delivery: Face 2 Face & Webinar


Target Audience

Elected members and council staff



‘Council & Committee Meetings’ is the third 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.

This session is designed to develop skills and understanding of the structure of council & committee meetings and the formal decision making process. Drawing on the experience of the first couple of council meetings elected members will be given an opportunity to further explore meeting procedures through participation in a mock meeting.
