Auckland Council

Elected members' attendance at meetings

​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.
