The administration and management of the election process is subject to constant pressure- from a need to adhere to a rigid election timetable and process to the increasing scrutiny of the system. With unitary, mayoral, district and parish elections scheduled to take place on Thursday 2nd May 2019 and the increasing uncertainty over next steps on Brexit, this is a timely, not to be missed event for all those involved in elections.
LLG's Elections Conference 2019 will provide a topical, lively and informative day of training, bringing you up to date with legal changes and developments in best practice as well as providing you with practical hints and tips. The programme includes sessions examining key case law developments, recent issues in elections and proposals for reform as well as practical help and advice on the management and administration of the election process.
An impressive speaker line-up includes Peter Stanyon, Chief Executive of the AEA, Mark Heath, Returning Officer for Southampton, John Austin, Chairman of ADSO, Mel Davidson, Head of Support and Improvement at the Electoral Commission, and Hugh Peart, Director of Legal and Governance Services at Harrow.
This is a must attend event for Returning Officers, Deputy Returning Officers, democratic services officers and lawyers involved in the election process.
The full programme will be published shortly.
