Councillor workbook: chairing skills

Chairing a meeting is one of the windows that local communities have into your council.

Councillor development

It’s an opportunity for your council to look professional and show clear leadership. It is can be one of the most difficult tasks you will ever undertake. Remaining calm under sometimes difficult circumstances is a skill which needs to be honed.

The LGA’s chairing skills workbook will equip new, and refresh more experienced chairs/chairmen, with all the tools and strategies necessary for a smooth running of a meeting; giving confidence to any councillor who is chairing a council or committee. It is highly recommended to all councillors and aspiring chairs/chairmen.
