Local Authority update
Previous page

The close of 2019 brings with it a new season of opportunities and challenges for the Local Government Pension Scheme. The forthcoming consultation on asset pooling statutory guidance, the much-anticipated decisions from the latest fair deal consultation, the uncertainty ushered in by the McCloud judgment, new governance aspects, and the continued surge in ESG work across the pensions industry and dashboard developments, all place the LGPS community yet again on the brink of what could prove to be another era of change.  

With the addition of content streams to provide extra clarity, and a high-profile roster of speakers, Local Authority Update delivers a thorough exploration of the most important issues facing individual local authority funds and the scheme as a whole. Pension board and committee members, administrators, employer representatives, fund managers and their advisers will find Local Authority Update a valuable experience, offering education, information exchange and networking with peers and colleagues from around the United Kingdom. 

This is a one day event, free to attend for local authority members of the PLSA, specifically designed to provide an essential update six months on from May’s Local Authority Conference. If you didn’t attend May’s conference please do not worry as this event will bring you up to speed with everything you need to know.


Please note that the event is primarily open to Local Authorities, places for business members is limited to 20.
