WALGA Training has added to its suite of blended learning opportunities, a range of interactive and sector relevant webinars specifically developed for the Local Government sector.

Not only do Webinars allow you to hear from sector experts on topical issues affecting your Local Government, but they also allow you to interact with your colleagues from around the State without spending time and money travelling to a specific location.

Webinars will be announced throughout the year in response to the dynamic Local Government landscape, so make sure you regularly check this page to see the latest we have on offer. Alternatively you can subscribe to our monthly Training eNews publication and have webinar notifications delivered direct to your email address.

Upcoming Webinars

Communications for Elected Members

Date: 20 June 2019
5:00pm - 5:45pm (AWST)

The role of Councillors prescribed in s.2.10 of the Act is a two way obligation requiring Elected Members to:

  • communicate the community's view to the Council throughout the decision making process; and importantly to also
  • communicate to the community the roles and legislative obligations of the Council, the Local Governnment and Elected Members relevant to each decision that the Local Government is required to make.
Clearly understanding the role of an Elected Member and the obligations of the Local Government are primary considerations before engaging in communications with community.

WALGA's Communications webinar will be presented by Lyn Fogg, WALGA's Governance Advisor. Joining Lyn for the Q&A session will be Tony Brown, Executive Director, Goverance and Organisational Services and James McGovern, Manager Governance.

As with all our webinars you will have an opportunity to ask questions during the Q&A Session at the end of the presentation. This webinar will be recorded and made available to the public within a few days of the event.
