REFRESH YOUR AGENDAS
10 am - 12 pm
We all know that councils must meet in order to make decisions so agendas are a key tool in local council management. This course will look at best practice models and give you tips on how to create really professional-looking agendas that are modern and clear. This course is recommended for all Clerks who are looking for inspiration to improve their council agendas.

I enjoyed the course very much. The other clerks were lovely. I could have gobbled up all of your time with questions! Great content.
Nothing needs improving - it was perfect!
Brilliant, very beneficial and really enjoyed it. I have a better understanding and learnt so much.
