Democracy In Action

November 14, 2023 @ 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm

NALC Democracy In Action
Do you want to give something back to your community? Help local people and achieve great things for your local area? Have a positive impact on wider society?

Hear about how you can be the voice of your community by standing for election as a local councillor at the May 2024 elections and beyond.

This event will provide a valuable opportunity to learn about the work and role of councillors and the huge difference you could make as a local leader in your area.

A panel of experts including those who have become councillors at various local government levels will share their insights, experience, and advice. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions, engage in discussions and access the wide range of support available to take action for your community.

Speakers: Jane Biscombe (Weymouth Town Council), Cllr Katharine Keats Rohan (Wallingford Town Council and South Oxfordshire District Council), Cllr Chidi Nweke (Epping Forest District Council) and Virginia Ponton (Local Government Association)
