Tips on Making Effective Presentations to Council
Provide as much information as possible to the Clerk’s Department prior to the meeting to ensure Council has an opportunity to review your information and prepare any questions. When addressing Council or answering a question, regardless of where the question came from, you should always address your comments to the Mayor or Chair. The Mayor is addressed as Mayor (last name), Mr. Mayor or Your Worship and the Chair of Council-in-Committee can be addressed as Chair.
When addressing Council or answering a question, always use the microphone. If you must move from your position to use a microphone, please move to the microphone before you begin speaking.
