Now you’ve been elected, what next?

Women for Election, a non-partisan, not-for-profit organisation that inspires and equips women to succeed in politics, will run its post-election training programme for Councillors on 7th June, 2019 in Dublin.

Our tailored training programme for Councillors immediately after they are elected help in preparing for the intense negotiation period following the election and ensure you can enter the Council Chamber with confidence.

Our training will:

  • Introduce you to local government structures
  • Prepare Councillors for the negotiation process for positions on Council Committees and within Council structures
  • Provide an opportunity to engage, network and share learning and experience with Councillors from across Ireland.

Our programme is relevant to Councillors elected for the first time, and those retaining or regaining their seats. We will hear representatives of the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, experienced councillors and our expert trainer Orlaith Carmody, who will help you develop and hone your negotiation skills.

The training is free but registration is required.
