Larger Councils - Larger is GBI>£100k

Mon, 30 Nov 2020 14:00

2.00pm to 3.30pm

Cost: £22.50 per delegate or £16.88 with small council bursary

In this session we are looking for larger councils to discuss issues that they encounter rather than their smaller counterparts. The business can be set by the councils that are present but we envisage that we will discuss issues such as the devolution of service provision by principal authorities and income loss due to service closures because of Covid-19. There will be opportunity in mid- November for councils who are going to be represented to put their agenda items forward.

How to Register for a Webinar

Tue, 01 Dec 2020

LCA Remote Training Sessions:

Remote training sessions are completed by Go To Webinar, Go To Meeting and Zoom. Each training session is included in the Training Programme, with links to each session.

Registration:

It is essential that registration takes place prior to the day of the session commencing. Attendees MUST provide the Council they are from when registering for a training session. We ask that all attendees register 1 day before the date of the session. Once registration has taken place an email confirming registration will be sent to the attendee, a reminder one day before the training session takes place and another reminder one hour before the start of the training session. Please do notleave registering for a training session until the day of the training as there are occasions when we provide documentation, which attendees need prior to the session. Sessions can quickly get full so register as soon as possible, with approval of the council, to avoid disappointment.

Cancellation:

If you register for a training session, then realise that you are unable to attend, please go back in and cancel your registration, which will allow another person to take your place. We have some sessions that become full very quickly.

Arrival at the session:

Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the training session taking place to ensure any technical difficulties are resolved before the session commences.

Invoicing:

Invoices will be sent to the council after the session has been completed. Please ensure you provide the council details when registering.

Feedback:

Feedback on the session will be requested. We hope to receive constructive feedback, which will help us prepare for future training sessions.
