Our executive packages put partners at the centre of influence on the key issues facing our sector.

Throughout the year, executive partners will work alongside a member of the president’s team to inform, shape and lead the debate on a policy theme.

These partners will also take a seat on the Local CIO Council where they can expect to help set and lead the vision and strategic direction for ICT and digital policy for local public services. Through engagement in this group, partners will also be able to network throughout local government, with central government and with the third sector.

These high-level connections allow executive partners to create lasting and meaningful relationships that stand the test of time.

There are several other packages available to suit partner needs, all with virtual and face to face elements.

President's Conference


Building on last year’s programme of events, we are pleased to offer new and improved partner opportunities for 20/21.

Our packages start at £2,500 and for this partners can attend three of our local meetings in person. With a choice of 10 regions, you can either use all three in one region or mix and match to suit your needs.

You will experience an engaged group and enjoy presentations, discussions and workshops with Socitm members. You can also have the stage for a memorable 2-minute elevator pitch to introduce yourself.

For the same cost you could attend five virtual meetings throughout the course of the year. These are small, intimate events and, depending on the size of the region and number of authorities, these events attract between 15-50 delegates.

If you would like to join one of our bigger national events, we have several options at different price points.

There is the option of joining one of our virtual events as either a panellist or presenter or joining us at our events held in the Midlands, London or Manchester, which offer the opportunity to host a workshop table for the day and put an advertorial in our magazine associated with the event.

And finally, our biggest event is our President’s Conference. The week-long affair will include a physical meet up for one day, with the remainder delivered online. It is an excellent opportunity to join in roundtable discussions and enjoy an evening of celebration when we announce our award winners and raise money for our chosen charity.

Webinar partner


Our national and local events bring our network of members and partners together. They strengthen relationships, inspire innovation, and provide a platform for sharing best practice.

Partnering with a Share event stars at just £1,000 which gives the opportunity to host a 60-minute webinar to an eager and engaged Socitm membership.

Other events including local, national and our President’s Conference give partners the chance to give presentations of various lengths depending on the package, have a directory listing on our website, and a subscription to our high-quality research service – Inform.

Whatever option is right for you, you will secure access to high-calibre individuals within their field who will offer unique insights of huge value to our sector.

Empowering Women & event partner


Launched in 2019, our Leadership Academy was established to deliver a series of programmes to harness, develop and promote talent.

This unique offering allows us to invest in 275 people per year, giving them the tools they need to become successful future leaders within our sector.

By partnering with our academy, you join our members on an incredible journey of personal development which create powerful networks that stand the test of time.

There are two strands which partners can support. These are Top Talent and Empowering Women. Both give fantastic partner benefits including brand exposure on our Leadership Academy page, hosting a workshop table at a Share National event, and hosting a networking dinner on the first day of either event.

Partnering also enables you to experience the course together with the members over a three month period, and assign the group project for presentation at one of our national events.

Inform partner


Each year, a member of our President’s Team will add commentary and opinion to two briefings of up to 2,000 words produced by you. We will then promote your content to our membership – and more widely – with our contribution strengthening your credibility in the public sector.

Improve summary partner


Our Improve Summary Report is one of our most widely distributed publications. Produced in hard copy and posted directly to our growing network of service users. Partnership enables you to add a 500 word introduction to the report and sponsor it with your branding.

We are very grateful for your efforts to date.

The support Microsoft receives from Chantelle and the team at head office is really fantastic.

Not only are they incredibly proactive when responding to enquiries, but they also work really hard to ensure we are getting the most out of our investment in a partnership.

This partnership is a key enabler in supporting our business objectives and assisted in developing high level relationships with senior decision makers across the public sector.
