The Local Government Association’s annual conference is the biggest event in the local government calendar. It also is one of the biggest political conferences of the year, regularly attracting over 1,100 delegates and keynote speakers from central and local government alike.
In June 2012, you can look forward to debates on economic growth, local leadership, new models of innovation in service delivery and a host of other issues.
It will also be happening just weeks away from the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games and attention will rightly turn to how economic growth can be generated across the country. The role of councils in creating jobs and wealth will be paramount.
With the forthcoming introduction of city mayors, policing and crime commissioners and health and well-being boards, councils will also need to demonstrate leadership at the heart of a new set of relationships between the citizen and the state. Pressure will be on local authorities more than ever to innovate, deliver and manage services differently.
