Share Local – West Midlands

11 September, 2019 - Hays Recruitment, Birmingham

Socitm’s West Midlands Region meets twice a year at a regional location, usually close to Birmingham to help with travel. We have a range of membership comprising of large city, county and metropolitan borough councils, smaller district authorities and third sector members.

We regularly attract 30-40 members to our events and have strong business sponsorship. We aim to make our agenda appropriate and relevant to the wishes of our members and each meeting will usually focus around one key topic. The style is informal with a welcome drink and refreshments from 9am and then we aim to have a mix of private sector sponsor presentations together with real life case studies from authorities who are leading the way in relevant technical matters. We hope to introduce more opportunities for discussion and debate at our future meetings and actively encourage new members to join.

A buffet lunch is provided and gives members time for networking. We close around 2pm.
