Localism Works - LG Group annual conference and exhibition
28-30 June 2011
July 2011 will see us at the centre of a fundamental rethinking of the way local government works. The Government's flagship Localism Bill has set out new leadership roles and a vision of a state in which communities, charities and businesses have increased powers in shaping the way their places develop and how their services are delivered. The Big Society will remain a phrase crucial to all discussions about the future of public services.
Our conference, 'Localism Works', intertwines these strands and asks how the role of local government should be defined in this brave new world. Plenary sessions, workshops, and events at the conference will allow you to play your part in advancing this debate and take a front-and-centre role in the continuing evolution of local government.
Speakers include: a senior cabinet minister, Rt Hon Nick Clegg MP, Deputy Prime Minister; Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party, Rt Hon Andrew Lansley, Secretary of State and Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, Minister of State for Decentralisation plus a whole host of leading local government speakers.
