As councils continue to grapple with major challenges, from funding and financial uncertainty to the unravelling housing crisis, the sector is also gearing up for change in the form of OFLOG and the recent general election.

  • What does a reimagined future look like for the sector in a post-election world?
  • What should twenty-first century public service look like and how are local councils are changing to be progressive and outward looking?
  • What innovative and alternative ways of doing things are being adopted today and what skillsets will be needed in our future leaders and workforce?

The prestigious LGC Summit brings together council chief executives and their senior officers at a critical time for the sector, providing a crucial safe space for them to share experiences, explore innovative solutions to common challenges and look to the future.

We are thrilled to be taking the event to Leeds on 13 and 14 November, where this invitation-only event will feature inspiring keynotes, insightful panel discussions and interactive sessions across two days, with a networking drinks reception and dinner and at the end of day one.

The LGC Summit is a unique opportunity to for council leaders to connect, reflect, collaborate and deliberate on where we are today and what the future holds for local government.
