Upcoming Workshops and Seminars:

Hoarders, junkyards, unsightly and derelict properties – LAST SESSION!

Please join us for Part 2 of our series on hoarders, junkyards, unsightly and derelict properties which focuses upon council clean-ups – when they can and should be progressed, how to mitigate risks and to ensure that the council is not out-of-pocket.

Our final seminar session is scheduled for Monday 17 June 2019 at Mitcham Memorial Library, 154 Belair Road, Hawthorn.

Don’t miss out – book now.

Public Interest Disclosure Act 2018

The Government has now announced the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2018 will come into operation on 1 July 2019. Upon commencement it will repeal the Whistleblowers Protection Act 1993.

Given the importance of these amendments to the public integrity framework, it is critical that councils give early consideration to the implementation of this regime, and to understand its operation in the wider context of the duties and requirements for public officers and public authorities.

Is your council ready for these changes?

Given demand, KelledyJones Lawyers has opened a further training session to be held on Thursday 16 May 2019 from 10:00am – 11:30am.

Practical Training: Council Member Post Election Essentials 2018/2019

Don’t do too much too soon”, is the message we are hearing over and over from councils about the mandatory training.  Accordingly, KelledyJones Lawyers, together with UHY Haines Norton and Leader’s Coach, have developed an incremental training methodology that provides council members, whether returned or new, with the essential knowledge to commence their 4 – year terms of office.
