Inducting Your New Councillors: The why, the how, the when, the what.
Course presenter: Jake Atkinson, LRALC CEO / John Kilcoyne, LRALC DCEO
Course outline: A comprehensive induction helps new councillors to settle in, to understand their role and expectations, to forge strong relationships with clerks and other officers, and to build competence and confidence in serving their community. However, in the parish sector a formal induction for new councillors is still relatively rare. This 90 minute session will help you plan and deliver a formal induction program for your new councillors, using existing and new resources produced by LRALC, NALC, and others. It will explain the many benefits of the initial investment of your time in offering such support to new councillors. It will also look at ongoing support for councillors following their initial induction, ensuring there is a culture of continuous learning and development.
Suitable for clerks (both new and long serving), and councils of every size.
Cost: £30 per delegate (member rate)
