Monthly meetings open to all Members able to receive support under the Independent Group. Information and development seminars provide an opportunity for members to discuss key issues, share best practice, respond to consultations and take part in development opportunities delivered by a range of LGA leads and external speakers. Members can attend in person or via telephone or video conference.
Our I&D Seminars are interactive and informative sessions, with topics based on feedback and suggestions from members.
We aim to ensure they are as relevant as possible to your work and include skills workshops, opportunities to contribute to policy development and briefings on new legislation.
All I&D Seminars are held from 11am – 1pm in our offices in London with dial-in options available.
The dates for the year ahead are below, along with the focus of our initial meetings:
