Changing role of the Councillor

Date: 19 June

Time: 1pm – 4pm

Venue: North West Employers, Manchester

Cost: £85 member organisations of North West Employers; £110 non-members + VAT

Details

This interactive session will look at the changing role of the councillor, both internally (within groups and the council) and externally (the community and partnerships etc), with a focus on how councillors can, even if not on the Executive, best exert influence to get the best deal possible for the communities they represent. The session will build on the experience of councillors and aim to develop their skills and confidence in this challenging, and vitally important work.

This session will be run by Ian Bottrill from ContinYou.
