Description

Tasmanian Elected Members are invited to the 2020 Elected Members' Professional Development Weekend which will be held at City Park Grand Clarion, Launceston on Saturday 29 February - Sunday 1 March 2020. The weekend is a valuable networking and professional development opportunity to assist Elected Members make the most of their role in Local Government.

LGAT has secured some highly regarded and engaging presenters for the weekend covering topics including:

  • Resilience Mental Health and Bullying - Being an Elected Member can be stressful with increasing workloads, public scrutiny, criticism and online and offline bullying. Elected Members also have to manage sometimes challenging relationships across a broad array of stakeholders. In this session participants will identify factors that increase personal resilience and promote positive mental health and examine bullying.
  • Understanding the Financial Reports of Local Governments - The workshop is based on CPA Australia’s recently released A guide to understanding the financial reports of Local Governments, developed to assist a range of stakeholders, including Councillors, in better understanding the accounting and regulatory aspects of Local Government financial reporting.
  • Conflict of Interest - The Integrity Commission will host a workshop on conflict of interest – this will include real-life scenarios, processes and management strategies for making difficult decisions, and where to receive advice and support. Elected Members will have the opportunity to share their own experiences and workshop solutions.
  • Health and Safety Legislation for Councillors – Edge Legal will provide an overview of councillors legislative obligations across a range of health and safety issues including: bullying, sexual harassment, conflicts of interest breaches, victimisation and other legal claims.
  • Local Government Division Update - An update from the division and introducing Mr Craig Limkin, Deputy Secretary Policy and Intergovernmental Relations, Department of Premier and Cabinet
