Dare To Be Different – and together we can be most effective
Want to meet up at last in a safe environment? This covid-safe conference will give councillors an opportunity to learn more about key aspects of the seismic changes in local government and how our roles will change through new arrangements on levelling-up and possible County Deals whilst we tackle climate change, health, planning and elections.
The increasingly popular, lunch time Speakers’ Corner is your opportunity to tell us what frustrates or inspires you about local government today and how changes ongoing impact on you and your community.
Reception: After the conference, you are invited to a reception at The Collection, Lincoln launching the new installation by Luke Jerram, Gaia Planet Earth
Attendance at the conference is free, including lunch. Register here.
The new Cathedral Centre is adjacent to the Cathedral
We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
