More than 30 delegates from the NT local government sector completed Governance Essentials for Local Government during April.

LGANT engaged the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) to provide the training to councillors and senior management with funding from the NT Government.

Fifteen delegates in Alice Springs and 18 from Darwin covered a range of topics over the two days including:

  • The role of the Council and Councillor
  • Leadership – Councils role
  • Risk – Issues for Councillors
  • Introduction to Financial Information for Councillors.

If the funding application is successful, LGANT is hoping to provide further AICD training for elected councillors, both old and new, after the August elections.
