Many thanks to all of you who took part and contributed to the newly launched LLG CEO Webinar brief on policy, strategy and trends in Local Government Law this week in partnership with Browne Jacobson. Attracting nearly 350 live streamed attendees the webinar was an informative and interactive event incorporating live polls and questions. It was interesting to note, (and perhaps not too surprising) that 80% of attendees indicated their workload had increased over the last 12 months. The webinar will be available to all those unable to join within the next couple of weeks, whilst LLG in the meanwhile will be examining the outcomes to update you in due course.

Somewhat progressively and hot off the heels of LLG's continued commitment at the Governance Conference to influencing on the national stage, we are currently examining the ways in which we can proactively work together with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government on Brexit. Talks are well underway, and I am in contact with regional branches about LLG's strategic approach to information knowledge gathering and expert pooling. This is a fantastic opportunity to have our voice heard and contribute proactively to the policy and legislative formulation taking place within central government. Brexit Focused Regional Groups will be established over the next two weeks with the expectation that once clear on their agenda, the groups will input nationally and go on to meet with representatives from the Ministry individually within their regional groups. If this is something you would like to be involved with, please contact me at Helen@llg.org.uk and highlight your area of law and governance or the area which interests you most.

Championing our expertise, the LLG Awards 2018 Finalists have now been published. Click here to see all those in the running to take home a coveted trophy at the ceremony on 9th November 2018. Good luck to all!

Best wishes.
