Justin Griggs Head of Policy & Development NALC will speak on the Local Council Award Scheme: The Award Scheme has been designed to both provide the tools and encouragement to those councils at the beginning of their improvement journeys, as well as promoting and recognising councils that are at the cutting edge of the sector. It is only through the sector working together, to share best practice, drive up standards and supporting those who are committed to improving their offer to their communities that individual councils and the sector as a whole will reach its full potential.

  • Presentation skills for councillors 
  • Elections 2015
  • Transparency reporting requirements for councils with a bi of up to £25k

For the first time the workshops are being repeated both in the morning and afternoon, giving delegates a choice of two out of the four workshops offered.

This seminar is aimed at Councillors and Clerks both new and experienced.

WALC Annual Conference and AGM

This year is the start of a full four-year cycle and is the perfect time to think ahead about what your council can and should be doing during that time.  Many of you will have new councillors and it is important to engage them in a new programme for your Council while they are enthusiastic.  For that reason, we have selected a range of topics that should apply widely and will hopefully inspire you to pick up on some of the ideas.
