We were proud to once again sponsor this year’s NALC Annual Conference which took place last week at the Milton Keynes Stadium. The conference was attended by over 200 representatives of parish councils, town councils and county associations.
Round up from the two-day event
It was great to meet so many of the councillors and clerks throughout the two-day event and catch up with those we have built a relationship with over the years. We discussed our new Parish Online partnership and how councils can get their licenses for free as well as another new partnership with Berea, the cybersecurity and cyber-training specialist.
Our workshop ‘Protecting your Community from Cybercrime’ with our cyber expert Andy Hall was well-received amongst the councils, who understood the need for cybersecurity and the importance of keeping their data and IT systems secure.
We are looking forward to getting in touch with everyone who we met to see how we can support them in the future!
