No council can afford to overlook strategies to improve and maintain the health of member-officer relationships particularly in an era of growing political volatility, social media interaction and resident demands. This Innovation Exchange will explore how councils are getting ahead of the curve to ensure positive member-officer relationships in a rapidly changing time.
Unique to the sector, these day-long events are 100% peer led. Participation is exclusive and free to NLGN members. The confidential and safe environment, expertly facilitated by NLGN staff, encourages senior officers from across the country to candidly and constructively explore the challenges they face.
The scholarship of Nobel Prize-winning economist Elinor Ostrom lies at the heart of NLGN’s work on the Community Paradigm. This project seeks to draw out some of the most important ideas from Ostrom’s long career and distil a set of new design principles for those working to further localism and community power in the UK today.
