NWLC ANNUAL TRAINING EVENT 2015 – NOW OPEN FOR BOOKINGS!
We are delighted to announce that this year’s event will be held at the Langtree Stadium in St Helens on Tuesday 6th October 2015. You can now book your place by visiting the courses page on the website at www.nwlegalconsortium.com
We’ll be publishing further details in the weeks ahead to build an event that we hope will have something for everyone. Watch out for more details of our plans for the 2015 event in future E-Bulletins.
Your Solicitors Framework ends at the end of March 2016.
Consultation with our current partner firms has been completed so now it’s the turn of all our member organisations to have their say about how we should proceed. All Heads of Service will be receiving a note of the Management Board’s recommendations for the proposed future plans and the Board look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions before a final decision is made. The outcome will be reported to all through a future Bulletin in the summer.
Also as reported last month ahead of the new arrangements we are looking to renew the Collaboration Agreement between Sefton (as lead organisation) and the other member organisations. We’ll be communicating with all heads of service about this too.
The Consortium is very pleased to welcome Copeland Borough Council as a new member organisation. This takes our membership number to 43 public organisations.
Don’t forget to let us know when you have new colleagues joining your organisation (and leaving too of course) All you need to do is drop a quick e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with the detail of the staff changes and we’ll take it from there!
Free Consortium healthchecks are available to member authorities to spread the word about the benefits of membership of the Consortium, explain how the website can be used and basically do a bit of a healthcheck as to what each authority uses the Consortium for etc and how best we can assist.
