NALC launches Annual Conference 2019 – book now!
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) today launched its Annual Conference 2019 taking place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Milton Keynes on 28 and 29 October 2019.
This is the biggest event in the NALC calendar and is now in its fourth year. This follows the huge success of the event in its first three years in Birmingham and Milton Keynes. NALC is going to make this year’s event even better!
The conference is an essential event for anyone interested in the role of local councils in strengthening their communities. So join them and other parts of the public, private and charity sectors to discuss the key policy issues of the moment.
The event will reinforce the NALC vision that local (parish and town) councils will be the natural focus for a range of public activity and service delivery; giving a democratic voice to those communities working in partnership with other agencies.
This landmark event for the local council sector will provide unique access to:
- dynamic and hard-hitting plenary updates on the latest policy developments affecting local councils (the secretary of state for Housing, Communities and Local Government will be invited). NALC will also be inviting the Local Government Association (LGA) chairman to speak.
- practical and relevant workshop sessions offering cutting-edge solutions to the vital issues affecting your councils. Sessions will include networking opportunities, sharing good practice, case studies and updates on national lobbying campaigns.
- a large sector-specific exhibition showcasing services from organisations that can support your council’s every need.

Cllr Sue Baxter, NALC Chairman, said “NALC is delighted to launch it's Annual Conference 2019. We want to build on the sell-out success of the 2018 event which was attended by over 350 people. We will be featuring a full exhibition, dynamic plenary sessions from senior Government and local government representatives and practical and relevant workshop sessions. Sessions will include networking opportunities, sharing good practice, case studies and updates on current national lobbying campaigns. There will be something for everyone at this event, so we encourage anyone interested to get in early and book now!”
