The New Clerk Series of webinars will be informal & friendly sessions. They have been created to help new clerk’s walkthrough their first year with ease.

There are four webinars in the series that will each cover a three-month period of the year and what a clerk will need to consider / plan for in the year.

This webinar will look at the months of September, October, and November and will also cover the below topics:

  • Calendar of meetings for next year
  • Precept / budget setting
  • Forward planning – projects over the next year (cost implications / going out to consultation)
  • Annual Appraisals / CPD points
  • Register for attendance at National Conference
