Elected Members Webinar Series

The Elected Members' webinar Series has been developed by the IS to provide elected members with further development opportunities. Webinars are held live and elected members are encouraged to join in and participate on the day. Webinars are also recorded, so elected members that couldn’t join in on the day, can access and view the content.

A list of our upcoming and archived webinars is below:
