The 2019 local body elections are nearly upon us, and with a brand new batch of mayors, councillors, and community board members, its crucial that newly elected members become familiar with the sector, their role, and their responsibility to drive community success.

This presentation, hosted by EquiP Professional Development Manager Jill Calogaras, will explain EquiP's post-election induction programme for elected members across the country. 

This free webinar is for any council staff involved in the planning and/or delivery of elected member induction.
