Code of Conduct in Practice

Mon, 10 Jun 2019 19:00

This course will look at the practical operation of the Code of Conduct at parish and town council level and will answer all your questions as to what interests to declare and when. We will look at how the Standards regime has changed from a rules-based system to a principles-based one and we'll look at what the future might hold. . This course is suitable for all councillors as well as clerks who are often put in the awkward position of providing advice to councillors on their interests.

Local Council EXPO 2019

Fri, 21 Jun 2019 10:00

Building on the success of EXPO 2016 working with NALC and a range of Partners, LGRC is again staging a major one day EXPO for the Local Council Sector. This will be the largest single gathering of Local Councils in 2019. We aim to provide an opportunity for Clerks Councillors and others interested in Local Councils to see the complete range of products and services that a Council might need, all in one place. If you will be looking for a supplier of anything from tractors to IT equipment, or signage to stationery, in the next year or two this is the ideal place to start. If you need to review your banking or insurance, or create a new website, we expect all the major players to be here.
