REGIONAL CONFERENCE!

This year we held a joint regional conference with the East Midlands branch of ADSO on Friday 3 July at Shire Hall, Warwick. The event had a fantastic turnout from across the two regions and delivered a “looking ahead” theme, focusing on the impact of the May elections on local democracy and governance and what’s in store for local government and Democratic Services over the coming years. As well as workshops delivered by experienced practitioners, the event also had valuable input from Grant Thornton and Weightmans, who brought an external perspective and useful pointers regarding the future challenges for Democratic Services.

Thank you again to all of the speakers and workshop facilitators who participated in the event and to our sponsors Astech, Audio Minutes and Modern.gov.
