Elected members' attendance at meetings

Our elected members attend meetings and workshops to make formal decisions, canvas issues or prepare for upcoming discussions. Attendance at Governing Body and Committee meetings are published monthly and local board meeting attendances are published quarterly.

​Local board members' attendance at meetings

​Auckland Council’s 21 local boards make their decisions at formal business meetings, while workshops are used to canvas issues or prepare for upcoming decisions. Some boards also hold community forums, which are used to discuss public forum and deputation items and, if required due to time constraints, to consider items of local board business.

Further information about the types of meetings is available on Conducting governance business.

These documents show the attendance of the local board members at business meetings and workshops. For the local boards that host community forums, this attendance is also included.

Absences may be due to prearranged leave, illness, bereavement or absences while attending to other council business.

An attendance record document will be published each quarter.

Governing Body and Committee attendance records

These tables show the attendance of Auckland’s mayor and councillors at the Governing Body meeting, committee meetings and workshops.

Forums, working parties and meetings with co-governance entities are not included.

Absences during the period shown may include prearranged leave, illness and bereavements. Absences from meetings while on council business are recorded separately.

Three week-long meeting breaks are scheduled each year, during school holiday periods. Members often take additional leave during these times.

We publish these attendance records monthly, with three months’ worth of records being shown at any one time.
