From Cllr to MP Events
We are excited to welcome a number of the 2019 Parliamentary intake, who are either still or were councillors at the time of their election in December, to talk to CCA Members. We'll be exploring their experiences in local government and how these have helped to shape their work in Parliament since. If you have a question on getting more involved, what it takes to become an MP, or to hear what they have been doing since they were elected then please do come along!
Alexander Stafford MP, Rother Valley, 26th May, 5:00pm
Ben Everitt MP, Milton Keynes North, 10th June, time TBC
Selaine Saxby MP, North Devon, 16th June, 6:00pm

SAVE THE DATE: Group Leaders' Day, 18th of June
We hope you'll be able to join us for this year's Group Leaders' Day. Held virtually, the Group Leaders' Day will be an opportunity, following May's local elections, for Group Leaders both in Control and Opposition (including those technically in No Overall Control) to come together to reflect on lessons learnt and to discuss the next steps going forward. We'll be joined by Ministers and members of CCHQ's professional staff throughout the day. Further information will be circulated in due course.
New Councillor Development Training Workshops
Following on from our successful Autumn and Pre-Election Training programmes, we have been working with councillors and CCHQ to provide a new all-encompassing suite of virtual training, aimed especially at new councillors. As part of the virtual training we have already held a number of sessions, and continue to work on hosting a number of sessions covering a variety of themes. Please remember that a number of training material from past workshops can be found on the Member Area.
Please continue to check back and refer to our regular updates and emails as we add more training workshops to the programme. If you're unable to attend, please get in touch with the Team, who may be able to share any relevant materials.
