Upcoming Events

 

November has arrived and the new lockdown has resulted in a continuation of our online format for meetings and events.

Regional web meetings are being organised, with the London and the South East Regional Meeting announced for 25 November. Registration is now open. The first half of the meeting, with presentations from Brighton & Hove City Council and Transport for the South East, is open to members from any region.

Our next webinar on 2 December on 'Low-Traffic Measures: Managing Community Engagement and Backlash', sponsored by Commplace and organised with Traffic Removal UK, is already at capacity with 150 registered. However, a waiting list is in place for those interested in receiving the recording and presentations afterwards.

Then from 26-28 January 2021 'Creating a Blueprint for a Post-Covid World' is the theme of our Annual Conference, to be held over three days in seven webinar sessions. A call for papers (on four sub-themes: Local, Connected, Clean & Active), sponsors and 'virtual exbitors' is now open.

The recordings and presentations from all previous webinars are in the Members' Area of the website (member access only).

If you're not already a member, we would really appreciate your support. We're offering a half price first year membership for local authorities as part of our 2020 membership drive. That's just £187.50! It's easy to join and you can do this by completing our Membership Form.

Other plans are afoot! If you have ideas for webinars/web meetings or wish to lead one yourself, or if your company would like to sponsor one or more webinars or e-bulletins, please do get in touch. Thank you for reading!
