   5. To consider the Cllr Petrie spoke about training for councillors. He had been asked to
   training of        make a submission to ERNLLCA about training and posed the questions
   councillors        ‘Should training of councillors be compulsory?’ ‘What form should it
                      take?’ ‘Could a membership card for councillors be devised to record
                      attendance at seminars training sessions etc’? After a discussion it was
                      agreed the training should not be compulsory but every effort should
                      be made to encourage councillors to attend training. It was universally
                      felt complicated procedures inhibited potential councillors.
   6. To consider the A paper had been submitted by the clerk on our present insurance. An P&R
   councils insuranceadvisor from Zurich Municipal (the council insurer) had been due to
                      attend the office today but had cancelled due to poor weather. It
                      was agreed to refer this to the next Policy & Resources meeting.
