10 Minute Trainers may be just what you’re looking for if:
- You are new to municipal council or administration; or
- You would like to expand your knowledge in your given role.
This training package has been developed to help councils work together more effectively using everyday examples they might face on the job.
The training is led by the administrator and designed to help councils help themselves, using their own legislation like their council procedures bylaw.
Each section contains a one to two-minute video highlighting a different situation that councils might face. The videos are light and humorous, and are designed to encourage important discussion. The goal is to improve your success as a municipal council.
10 Minute Trainers are an excellent team-building resource that costs nothing and can be completed in your municipality.
Module 1 - Council Procedures
There’s an old saying that ‘when everything else fails, read the instructions.’ Your council procedures bylaw is your go-to guide to conducting municipal business, and it needs to be followed and put into daily practice.
There are three different sections in this module, including:
- how to make a rush council decision;
- how to deal with unexpected agenda items; and
- how to get your council back on track when things aren’t working.
These sections focus on everything from special meetings and the minimum numbers of council required for a vote to pass, to dealing with delegations and committees.
In Module 1 you will discover whether your current practices are in line with your council procedures bylaw. If problems arise, 10 Minute Trainers will help open the lines of communication so you can get back on track.
