CPA Virtual Post-Election Seminar: National Assembly of Belize
Dates: 3, 5, 7 May 2021
At the request of the National Assembly of Belize, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Headquarters Secretariat is organising a virtual Post-Election Seminar for new and returning Members and Senators on 3, 5 and 7 May 2021.
The National Assembly of Belize held their elections on 11 November 2020 and takes the view that a comprehensive orientation for its Members of Parliament will be most valuable in building the capacity of newly elected parliamentarians. The Post-Election Seminar on parliamentary practice and procedure enables experts to share good practice from other Commonwealth parliaments and relate these experiences, in discussion, to the local political landscape.
About CPA Post-Election Seminars
For over 25 years the CPA have conducted Post-Election Seminars for parliaments at a national or sub-national level. This long-standing programme introduces newly elected parliamentarians to differing legislative systems and methods of working. The Seminars usually take place a few months after a general election, in either a physical on virtual format, and are delivered by senior, highly experienced current and former parliamentarians and parliamentary officials from throughout the Commonwealth.
The objectives are two-fold:
- To disseminate information on diverse good practices in Commonwealth parliaments as a way of providing options to parliamentarians;
- Promote an understanding of the way parliamentary procedures and practices can embed good governance into a system.
Topics covered by the programme include dealing with the media, working in the constituency, and effective scrutiny in committees.
This seminar is an invitation-only event for Members of the National Assembly of Belize. Registration is not available to the public or to other CPA Members. If you are a participant in this event and require further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
