****FULLY BOOKED****** Come into my Parlour! – demystifying the management of civic office

There is good evidence that, as longstanding Mayor’s and Chair’s Secretaries retire, they are not being replaced like for like. Instead, a senior manager might stalk the Democratic Services corridor and put their hand on the shoulder of an unsuspecting DSO, announcing ‘I want you to take on management of the civic office’.

After the initial shock, thoughts will turn to ‘what does it entail?’ ‘where do I start?’ and ‘who can I talk to for support?’

This ADSO webinar will set you in the right direction and will be led by Phil O’Brien, who has 37 years’ experience in the field. A former Head of Democratic Services at Derby City Council, Phil’s first local government role was as Assistant Mayor’s Officer and he served 32 consecutive Mayors. Phil is a founder member and sits on the Executive Committee of the National Association of Civic Officers (NACO) and is author of ‘Surviving Scrutiny – a 21st Century Civic Office.’ He also helped develop the ADSO Diploma Civic Pathway.

Hosted by ADSO, the webinar will take place on Wednesday 10th March from 3.30-4.30pm.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions of Phil and share your views.

The webinar is sponsored by Link Support Services (UK) Ltd (www.linksupportservices.co.uk). Link is in its 27th year providing highly regarded bespoke member and officer training.  It supports over 150 Councils, Police and Crime Panels, Fire and Rescue Authorities and Combined Authorities with their member and officer training requirements and are a NACO approved training partner.
