Webinar questions and answers

Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions throughout the webinar which will be addressed during the Q&A session. 

The Q&A session is not included in the recording. Accompanying Q&A will be attached below each webinar recording as soon as possible after the live event, including unanswered questions. Published questions will remain anonymous. Processing times may vary due to the number of questions and associated resourcing requirements.

Responses to frequently asked questions will be provided on the Assessor questions and answers and Local government questions and answers pages where applicable. These questions will also contribute to the development of future webinars and other BOS supporting resources.
