- Webcast for MEMBERS SUPPORT STEERING GROUP ANNUAL REPORT
Steve Fox, Head of Democratic and Member Services, introduced the report. The purpose of the report was to enable the Constitution and Standards Committee to be appraised of the work during the 2022/2023 municipal year and ongoing planned work of the Members Support Steering Group. The Constitution and Standards Committee would receive the report at the first meeting of each municipal year.
The Chair commented that there had been significant changes in the make up of the Council over recent years with 23 new Members being elected to the Council in May 2023. He suggested that the comprehensive work undertaken by Members and Officer in development the Member Learning & Development Strategy 2023-2027 had resulted in a new member induction program which was well though through and flexible.
Councillor Grier welcomed the fact that many training opportunities were online and further asked if new members were provided with information on alternative methods of travel to in person meetings. Steve Fox responded that this was actively promoted through the Member Support Team who were on hand to assist and advise any Member.
Resolved – That the report be noted and endorsed.
