This week on the Governance Update, Chris Eddy and Stephen Cooper explore some of the latest issues to surface in the local government sector, including a growing number of defamation cases and complaints arising from social media usage.

Steve makes a link between this week's Australian Story on ABC and local government culture; plus the impact on culture when CEO behaviour doesn't meet required standards, and the costs of deferring council elections in New South Wales.

The Governance Update from VLGA Connect is sponsored by the team at Hunt & Hunt Lawyers - www. hunthunt.com.au
