Events

LGiU Scotland is here to help share policy information for local government across Scotland, so we’re developing a schedule of occasional events to help politicians and officers in local government explore and share policy development. We’ll also post other events that may be of interest.

Our launch events took place in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Let us know what events would be useful to you – for example:

  • informal networking meetings?
  • seminars exploring major themes?
  • events on specific new policy/legislation?

And if you can help by hosting, let us know too!
