Be a part of the Rural Management Challenge 2017!

Improve, transcend and expand your knowledge on local government, management skills and team work ability.

The Rural Management Challenge is a professional development opportunity for all up and coming staff within council.  Specially designed to provide councils in rural and regional areas of NSW the opportunity to take part in this truly unique professional development experience, the Challenge develops skills and knowledge that can be immediately applied back at council.

How The Challenge Works

Over two days, teams of four come together to compete against other councils in their region as they are challenged with tasks which stretch their knowledge of local government and their council’s policies and procedures. All tasks are tailored specifically for rural and regional councils, addressing realistic scenarios faced in the day-to-day management of council operations.
