2019 Pre and Post Election One Day Symposium April 2019

This one-day symposium is a follow up to the two-day symposium held in January 2019.  The January symposium had a strong focus on pre and post-election planning.

Feedback from participants was very good and we have now been asked if we would run a one day version of the symposium focusing on the elections and in particular pre and post-election planning – setting an induction and establishment plan for the incoming elected members, critical must do actions, establishing an ongoing programme for elected member development, thinking of the risks relating to induction and making sure that all the “i’s” are dotted and the “t’s” crossed!
