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.

The meetings begin over coffee and also include lunch… Free food and drink – what more could you want? 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
