The annual LLG Monitoring Officers Conference is a not to be missed event for all Monitoring Officers, Deputy Monitoring Officers and Democratic Services Officers dealing with member issues.

The packed programme will give delegates all the essential tools and key updates to carry out their roles, as well as offering insights into the latest policy initiatives and thinking around leadership, good governance and ethical standards.

The LGA will give detailed information about their programme to promote civility in public life and delegates will receive the latest update on the review of the member code of conduct, due to be launched at the LGA conference in July. Jacqui McKinley from the Centre for Public Scrutiny will give an insight into good governance and the importance of effective scrutiny, whilst David Kitson from Bevan Brittan will offer some essential tips on the dos and don’ts of using social media.

The conference programme also includes a case law update on standards issues as well as the latest on procurement post Brexit. There will also be a session on key employment issues, particularly for Monitoring Officers. And finally, our keynote speaker, Charlie Adan, Interim Chief Executive of Sheffield City Council will give us her thoughts and reflections on good governance and leadership.
