Advanced Councillor Training Series - Under Pressure, Making it all Work: Session 1

Event Date
May 08, 2024 - 9:00 AM (EDT) to 12:00 PM (EDT)

Elected municipal officials are facing many pressures. This includes: provincial interventions in municipal matters, a lack of Council cohesion, concerns about ethical behaviour, the challenges of municipal stewardship, relations with municipal staff, the demands placed upon you by constituents...and of course your unique experiences arising from local matters. The pressure is real and we are here to support you.

Over the past year, you, our members, have asked for additional support to help guide you in your difficult role. AMO is pleased to announce, its new, 3 part Councillor Training Series- Under Pressure, Making it All Work.

Through outreach to our membership, we have developed this training to address the areas most frequently identified as the biggest concern for AMO members. These sessions will dig into some of the more challenging aspects of local leadership.

Session 1
This training focuses on the ABCD of governance and leadership including:
A – Foundational Governance 
B – Ethical Responsibility 
C – Council-Staff Relations

You will explore each of these elements, your roles and responsibilities within and effective, healthy and productive approaches to each.

This one-day workshop will be offered virtually, 10:00am-4:00pm.
Fee: $425.00 (+hst)
A $75.00 cancellation fee applies.
