The MJ Future Forum North

Thank you to everyone who was part of The MJ Future Forum North.

Last week (23 & 24th March), the Forum welcomed delegates, speakers and sponsors to the Midland Hotel in Manchester. The entire MJ team would like to send a huge thank you to all those involved in what was an excellent two days of networking and debate.

Speakers at the 24-hour networking high content seminar focused on the government’s levelling up programme and the White Paper, examining what this meant in practice for Northern local authorities, for devolution and for their communities. Also discussed was what role is expected from councils in the levelling up agenda? Delegates heard from expert speakers as well as networked with peers to share views and experiences.
