Standing Orders are part and parcel of all formal meetings in local government whether of the Council, Committee or Community Board.  Elected Members should be familiar with Standing Orders top participate effectively in meetings.  The staff that support meetings of the Council, Committees and Community Boards provide advice on Standing Orders to elected members in the political meeting environment.

This workshop will also be of interest to reporting staff and senior staff that support political meetings.

This is an opportunity to explore the “ins and outs” of Standing Orders and to hear about recent updates that have come from recent reviews of Standing Orders.
