Local Authority Update is coming to you. Make connections, share insight and discover new thinking at a world-class, two-day online conference.


A strong community and one of the largest pension schemes in the world. Today the Local Government Pension Scheme is facing challenges on a global scale.

Join us at the Local Authority Update – the essential autumn event for the LGPS covering 6 million members and assets of £291 billion – to examine some of the biggest topics for the scheme right now.

Learn about the repercussions of Covid-19 and how the industry plans to navigate the new normal. Find out the next steps of McCloud implementation and hear about new guidance on responsible investment. Discover how the Pensions Dashboard will work for the LGPS and follow progress of the LA Good Governance project.

The programme includes keynote speeches and break-out sessions. If you are a business member and would like to get involved through digital exhibiting or sponsorship please contact Adrian from our Business Development team Adrian.Messina@plsa.co.uk
