To ensure our members have the best opportunity to network, develop their skills and access up to date information we have a number of events throughout the year. This includes our annual conference in November, monthly information and development seminars and regional group meetings.

Annual Group Conference

Each year, the LGA Independent Group holds an autumn conference where our members are able to come together to network, discuss key policy issues and take part in skills workshops. 

This year’s conference will be held on 6 November 2020 at 18 Smith Square, Westminster, London SW1P 3HZ.
