Agendas and Minutes – From One Clerk to Another – 2 & 9 November
Agendas are the key tool for a successful meeting and minutes are a requirement at all local council meetings. This interactive course is designed for anyone who would like to acquire or improve their skills, knowledge and understanding of working effectively in meetings.
From One Clerk To Another
A series hosted by clerks for clerks to help them gain further understanding, training and advice on various aspects of their jobs.
