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 pre-arranged leave, illness and bereavements. Absences from meetings or workshops while on council business are noted separately. Three week-long meeting recesses are scheduled each year, during school holiday periods. Members often take additional leave during these times.

Attendance records are published monthly, with three months’ worth of records being shown at any one time.
