The key driver for the 2021 Local Government Conference is “Councils Make It Happen” which will identify the economic, investment, social, health and related recovery together with the vital role of local government in partnership with the Executive in strengthening our communities, enabled by a transformative Programme for Government. What is to come in terms of the massive challenges, powers and transformations needed, in the complex future we face? With expectations on councils rising, the increased demands place huge resource burdens on the 11 councils, so innovation, transformation and partnerships will be needed to meet our recovery, growth and efficiency challenges.
Conference 2021 is regarded as a key event that promotes networking, the sharing of knowledge, skills and ideas. NILGA represents the ‘Voice of Local Government’ in Northern Ireland, the event is supported directly by SOLACE, the local government Chief Executives and Senior Officers body with participation from the 11 councils, political parties and many more.
