December is an exciting time of year with the prospect of a well-earned break (for most) and the chance to spend valued time with family and friends. At LLG, the excitement is also compounded by the release of several key positions on the LLG Board, as we recruit for the appointment of roles at the AGM in April next year. Not only that, it will also witness the launch of the LLG Awards 2020! Yes, we are back again!! But first to the board…

If you would like to enhance your career, skill set, networking circle and contribute to the profession in which you belong, then the roles on offer can tick all those boxes and place you ahead of the field, whatever stage of career you are at. We are currently seeking applications for Deputy Vice President, Treasurer and Deputy Junior National Lead . The expectation with Deputy Vice President is that you proceed through to Vice President and onto President in the year 2022-2023. The Deputy Junior National Lead, will, subject to performance, be appointed as the Junior National Lead in 2021 with a seat as director on the LLG Board. We also still have positions open for National Leads in the areas of employment and procurement. If you would like to discuss any of the positions please do not hesitate to contact me or our CEO, Deborah Evans for an informal chat.

Now, the immensely exciting news that the LLG Awards 2020 will launch Monday 9th December 2019. The two-stage application process is back with first stage nominations to be received by 20th January 2020 (note the date!). We will be holding the Awards night on the evening of the black-tie dinner at the Weekend School in Birmingham on Thursday 2nd April 2020. Tickets will be available for both conference and non-conference attendees. The number of categories is now 6, but includes the staple Junior, Team and individual Awards. We also see a return to the People Lawyer/Team, Governance Lawyer/Team and Place Lawyer/Team categories. We are very excited to be holding the Awards at the Weekend School and delighted to be in Birmingham, which saw quite a party the last time the Awards were held there. Why not start thinking about nominating your team, a colleague or even yourself for the recognition amongst your peers within the local government legal profession that no doubt, is well deserved!

Have a very lovely weekend.
