Share Local – West Midlands

4 June, 2020

West Midlands Virtual Meeting

Local meetings are held several times a year in each region for our members to connect and engage with each other. It gives our members a chance to see what other authorities are working on or even having challenges within their council and discuss topics that are current.

 

We understand that you find the meetings beneficial and value networking with other peers across the industry, this has motivated our decision to host a virtual meeting to keep us all connected at a time like this. If you have a topic that you think would be interesting to discuss or you would like to find out more send your suggestions through to us at hello@socitm.net

 

Please note this event is a virtual meeting and will be taking place via Cisco Webex.  

We’ve a truly excellent agenda in store for you at Socitm’s West Midlands Share Local meeting.  The purpose of this meeting is to allow members to explore and and discuss online collaboration tools.
