This course goes beyond the basics of preparing agendas and minutes, aiming to support better decision making, running efficient and effective meetings and good governance.

Learners will develop both a sophisticated understanding of the compliance requirements and the skills to develop systems and procedures, to ensure that these requirements are met.

This course is directed to senior Officers including CEOs who supervise the organisation of Council and committee meetings, contribute to the conduct of meetings, and manage the development and distribution of meeting-related documentation. All Officers who prepare reports, attend Council meetings, or are involved in the agenda and minutes preparation process, will also gain benefit from attending this course.
