This year’s popular joint LGA/ALDC Councillors Weekend will take place 28-30 June at Yarnfield Park in Staffordshire.
The weekend provides a great opportunity to meet with fellow councillors from across the country, whilst enjoying a packed programme of tailored training sessions.
Come along to improve your skills in your important roles as both a Liberal Democrat councillor and campaigner.
The 2019 agenda is yet to be decided, but in 2018 the training included: how to be an effective councillor, managing casework, political influencing, scrutiny and a Facebook advertising masterclass.
It is worth asking your council if they will fund your attendance at the weekend from their member training budget. The current early-bird rate which is linked to the number of places sold is:
- ALDC members single-room: early-bird rate of £165, mid-rate of £200 and a final-rate of £245.
- ALDC members double or twin room per person: early-bird rate of £135, mid-rate of £170 and a final-rate of £215.
- Non-ALDC members: £285 for a single room; £255 for a double or twin room per person. Join us to benefit from discounted attendance.
