I came across this article recently, highlighting how the UK's local government sector is facing so many of the same issues that we're facing here in Australia. And given that I feel chuffed to know we've got Jonathan Carr-West (photo to the right) of London's Local Government Information Unit presenting on several of our shared topics of interest at our National Congress in Hobart, May 22-24. Make sure you check out the program.
Some of the topics Jonathan will address include devolution, place-based governance, leadership and gender diversity in local government. Not to be missed!
