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.

These include our LGA Independent Group Annual Political conference in November, the LGA Annual Conference in July, workshops, and regional group meetings. The LGA also holds a great number of events and training for all members.

LGA Independent Group Annual Political Conference

The LGA Independent Group supports the annual political conferences of our members in parties. Please keep an eye out at these conferences for our sessions.

We know that our independent member councillors and those from local parties will not otherwise enjoy the networking and learning opportunities of an annual political party conference, so we host this. It is important to us that our Group is united, so all our members are welcome to attend and contribute to our Annual Political Conference.

We usually hold the Annual Political Conference in November.

For presentations and information on past conferences, please visit our past conferences webpage.

Other events, regional events and workshops

Information on all our events, regional events and workshops are sent out in the weekly Group bulletin. Information on think tank workshops will be included on the think tank members’ website.
