SOLGM has scheduled two new webinars.

What happens next with online voting?
6 September (with a recording available after the live webinar)

Online voting remains high on the list of priorities for LGNZ and SOLGM. We’ve been progressing discussions with central government ‘behind the scenes’ for the past few months. Giving approval for the policy and technical work will be one of the first decisions an incoming Government and Minister will take. This webinar will set out a proposed sector-led approach to a trial of online voting in 2019. To learn more, and to register your entire council for $50 so you can make an informed choice about joining the trial, click here.

The 2017 SOLGM/BERL Adjustors
4 October (with a recording available after the live webinar)

By the time this webinar occurs, SOLGM will have released the latest edition of the SOLGM/BERL adjustors and the Local Government Cost Index. Most local authorities treat these as one of their key forecasting assumptions for long-term planning purposes.

This webinar is a good opportunity to get some practical forecasting advice from one of New Zealand's leading economic forecasters, Dr Ganesh Nana. To learn more, and to register your entire council for $250, click here.
