Induction Program for Elected Members

As a CEO, the first months after an election is a period of considerable upheaval to ensure that all Council Members are sufficiently or appropriately aware and prepared for their roles and responsibilities.
Enabling Council Members to settle into their representative role with knowledge of how and when they are able to have input into the decision making process of the Council will reduce misunderstanding and potential non-compliance.
The program includes an Induction Manual template (e-version), allowing individual Councils to contextualise and brand their own resources whilst offering a structured induction program. It will assist the CEO’s to inform all Council Members of expected standards and emphasising their role as community leaders.
