An opportunity to gather together our increasing number of Co-operative Councillors, to share experiences, look to the future and provide tools for co-operative solutions.

In the midst of elections, many of our members will switch off from events till after 2nd May. So I am asking officers and our listed Labour & Co-operative Councillors to help promote this event which given the number of Co-operative Councillors we already have, plus we hope new ones, a conference to give support and direction to, is ideal so soon after 2nd May.

Officers, can you consider letting interested members know their travel expenses will be covered?

Councillors, can you encourage your colleagues to attend?
