Resources for Local Government members

Our department is committed to developing resources for elected members in non-written and multi-media formats to support improved access to local government information.

More than 30 short training videos have been developed on the key skills and information needed for regional members is available online.

Topics include the legislative framework, the role of our department, elected member responsibilities and relationships, financial management, informed decision-making and council meetings.

Information about the code of conduct and conflict of interest matters has been recorded in 18 Aboriginal languages, through our Aboriginal Interpreter Service.

These resources are now available at
