This half-day live session will explore the statutory and other roles of a Monitoring Officer. We will look at the Section 5 duty to report as well as other responsibilities, for example in relation to member conduct. The session will also consider the key relationships a Monitoring Officer needs to have with a range of stakeholders, both inside and outside the council. We will conclude with a discussion on practical approaches, skills and behaviours to equip MOs to carry out their role effectively.
This session is ideal for newly appointed Monitoring Officers or colleagues who are planning to move into this role. It will also be very useful for DMOs who may carry out the role from time to time. Of course, any MO, however experienced, would be welcome to join as a refresher on current issues!
The session will be run by Bethan Evans, an experienced local government lawyer, Monitoring Officer and trainer.
