**REGIONAL NETWORK MEETING – Friday 21 September 2018 in York**


The first regional network meeting for the North East, Yorkshire and Humberside will take place at York City Council’s offices on Friday 21 September 2018. The agenda for the meeting is below:-


  • The Kirklees Democracy Commission – ‘Growing a stronger local democracy, from the ground up’
  • The Rotherham Story – Intervention to Recovery and the role of Democratic Services
  • Government Discussion Paper – Overview and Scrutiny (see attached)
  • ‘A Life In Democratic Services’
  • ADSO Board Feedback
  • Regional Network Development and Arrangements for future meetings

Developing the ADSO Regional Network


I am keen to enable ADSO Members to get more involved in the association’s activities at a local and regional level. Given the geographical spread of the region from Sheffield to Northumberland, it won’t always be feasible for Members to make regional meetings regularly, so I would welcome thoughts on developing county networks underneath the regional network. If these arrangements are already established, then it would be really good to hear about these.
