About the SIG

This new SIG aims to become the ‘go to’ group for all things governance and the point of contact for professionals working in this area to network, develop their knowledge and skills and share best practice, so that Councils don’t need to ‘reinvent the wheel’.

We understand that governance appears under different banners and sits within different areas in Councils, but this SIG aims to provide collegiate support to all people working within governance no matter the size or locations of their Council or whether they work full or part time.

  Online Community

This SIG is supported by an online community. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our communities are only for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow SIG colleagues questions and sharing resources. You can also see who else is involved in the SIG and get in touch with them quickly.  Agendas, minutes, presentations and other SIG resources will also be posted on the online community.
