We hope to make this a part of our annual service to members.
The seminars will be spread across England to ensure they are inclusive for all and will be presented for us by Neil Benn and Adrian Jenkins of Pixel Consulting.
The seminars themselves will give participants the chance to hear from two finance specialists with many years of experience on a wide range of topics, including the provisional settlement, longer-term prospects, council tax referendum issues, special grants and the New Homes Bonus. All sessions will feature round-table discussions in small groups so that everyone will have the opportunity to share knowledge and get the answers they need to respond to the consultation following the Government announcements due in December and to finalise their budget plans.
