NALC Spring Conference
Around 180 people attended NALC’s Spring Conference at the Royal National Hotel in London (sponsored by our partners BHIB Councils Insurance, Blachere Illumination and CCLA) on 11th February 2019, feedback has been really positive, here are a few highlights:
• the keynote speaker, Tracey Crouch MP, the former Government minister for loneliness, called on local (parish and town) councils to help tackle loneliness, praising and thanking our sector for “what you are already doing…already at the heart of trying to tackle loneliness and combat isolation and long may it continue.”
• NALC’s chairman, Cllr Sue Baxter, spoke about key themes in her recent open letter including national and local achievements, and the challenges and opportunities for the year ahead, followed by an update from our head of policy and communications, Justin Griggs, on our new strategic direction
NALC is partnering with the Local Government Resource Centre (LGRC) to stage a major one-day EXPO on 21 June 2019. This innovative event complements NALC’s existing conferences and events offer and will provide the largest single gathering of products and services, plus a range of demonstrations and presentations, all in one place.
