Councillor Induction 2020/2021


New Councillor Induction Program
Throughout the VLGA’s 25 years, we have worked to support councils in good governance over many election cycles.
It is a requirement under the Local Government Act 2020 that councils offer newly elected and returning councillors a comprehensive induction to council. By providing quality information, resources and education about the business of local government and councillor development, the VLGA can assist councillors in understanding the roles and responsibilities of being an elected representative and introducing them to the complexities and governance procedures of council.
The VLGA invites councils to partner with the VLGA to deliver one or more of these workshops over 5 distinct half-day modules, that can be delivered face-to-face or remotely. These workshops are now available to be booked, please contact Liddy Clark. For further information on the modules, please contact Steve Cooper.
