Support for elected Councillors
The LDAN is organised by South East Employers, the regional employers’ organisation for local authorities in the south east. The Network is open to both officers and councillors who have responsibilities for promoting local democracy, citizen engagement, good governance.
We are delighted to announce that Rishi Sunak MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Minister for Local Government) will be presenting on the topic of the Local Authority Digital Declaration and there will be a unique opportunity to ask questions and engage with him.
More about the Local Digital Declaration can be found here: https://localdigital.gov.uk
and Rishi Sunak’s speech to the LGA Conference last year, in which he launched the Local Digital Declaration, is here: https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/the-local-digital-declaration
Further key topics as part of the day will include
- Councillors and cyber security
- New Overview and Scrutiny Guidance from the Department for Housing, Communities and Local Government.
- Review of ethical standards for councils led by the Committee on Standards for Public Life.
