National welcome events for newly elected councillors (June 2021)

Following the elections in May the LGA are pleased to invite all newly elected councillors to attend one of the LGA’s virtual national welcome events, hosted via zoom. This will be a great opportunity for new councillors to explore what their role means; learn about challenges facing councils; and meet colleagues from other councils. The session will cover a range of national and regional issues of interest, along with an opportunity to meet experienced councillors and hear more about the LGA’s support for members. 

The virtual events are free of charge and will run for 90 minutes. Delegates can choose to attend any one of the below sessions to suit their availability:
