Dear colleague,

We welcome you to this month's events bulletin where the spotlight is on two of our annual conferences.

The LGA’s Annual Culture, Tourism and Sport Conference in South Tyneside on 5 March is fast approaching. The theme is ‘change’, and we will explore how councils are embedding sustainability within their cultural and leisure services and discuss how the national system of support and funding should be adapted. Walking tours include a visit to the National Centre for the Written Word or South Shields Beach, or there is the option of listening to a presentation on how South Tyneside Council is embedding equality within its local sports clubs.

This year’s LGA / ADPH Annual Public Health Conference will take place virtually on 19-21 March, focusing on exploring the future of public health, with a keen eye on local government and system-wide perspectives. Over three half-days, it will provide practical insights and strategic discussions to inform and address the evolving needs of our communities.

We also hope you can join us at the Recruiting from an ageing labour market event on 27 February. The event will be focusing on the capacity challenges within local authorities, the ageing labour market is largely untapped. This virtual event led by The Centre for Ageing Better, focuses on how to engage older workers, providing practical tips and advice to recruitment and HR teams.

Please find below details of our other forthcoming events.
