Local Government is very different to the corporate world. Does any other industry have a body elected from the community that has the final say on many issues? Does any other industry have such a wide range of responsibilities through cats, dogs, community services, aged persons, libraries, roads, swimming pools (public and private) etc etc? Does any other industry have such a vast array of Federal and State legislation imposed upon it? 

Local Government Professionals Australia WA has responded to this need by developing a one-day Induction to Local Government workshop which will be presented on a regular basis in both metropolitan and country areas.

Participants will learn about a diverse range of topics and issues including:

   • Local Government Decision Making
   • The role of council
   • Relationships between elected members and staff
   • Local Government Finance
   • Ethical Behaviour in Local Government
     ...and many more!
