Chairmanship Skills Pt 1

Tue, 28 Sep 2021 18:30

Chairmanship Skills Pt 1

6.30pm - 8.30pm £30.00 or £22.50 with small council bursary.

YLCA have decided to present this course slightly differently by dividing it into two sessions to allow sufficient time to examine the varying aspect of chairmanship in detail and allow time for questions. Over the two sessions we will examine the general principles of chairmanship, the importance of a good agenda, management of meetings, stimulating debate, managing councillors and the public and effective working with the clerk.

Only book onto this session if you are also booking Part 2.

Understanding the Local Government Association (LGA) Code of Conduct for Local Councils

Wed, 06 Oct 2021 18:30

Time: 6.30pm to 8.00p,

Cost: £22.50 or £16.88 with small council bursary

A Local Council, no matter what its size, must adopt a Code of Conduct for its councillors to apply to the conduct of its members when acting in official capacity. This requirement was introduced by the Localism Act 2011. In 2012, the National Association of Local Councils (NALC), issued a model Code of Conduct which many parish sector councils across the country have adopted. NALC has partnered with the Local Government Association to produce a revised Code of Conduct and this was published earlier this year. NALC has now formally withdrawn its 2012 model Code in favour of the LGA Code. Councils that have adopted the NALC Code, may adopt the LGA model Code or may adopt a Code recommended by their principal authority.

This session will consider the provisions of the LGA Code and its application by councillors, using the guidance that has been produced to accompany it (by Hoey, Ainscough Associates).

The webinar will be interactive, and you will be able to ask questions during the session.
