"Well worth the time – whether new to the job or seasoned”

 “My father served as Councilor, Deputy Mayor, Mayor, and Warden so I thought I knew a lot about councils. Wrong! I highly recommend this course for the information and links to resources members will require.”

 “I was feeling a little lost in my small rural Township as a council member. Taking this training helped me to realize that my feelings were normal and on the correct path. The presenters helped me to understand my role, the major pillars and responsibilities of being a council member and most importantly, continued my passion for why I ran in the first place. I highly recommend this training to newly elected council members and those with experience. We are all lifelong learners!”
