Inviting bids to host 2015 Commonwealth Local Government Conference
CLGF is inviting bids to host the 2015 Commonwealth Local Government Conference. The conference is expected to take place during March-April 2015. CLGF wishes to leave the detailed theme and title open to encourage bidders to suggest areas in local government in which they excel and can demonstrate good practice. Suggestions will be submitted to the CLGF Board for discussion and final decision to reflect the Board’s priorities and the international nature of the event.
As most regions of the Commonwealth have previously hosted the conference, CLGF encourages bids from every region to host the 2015 conference, but we will take into consideration those regions which have not hosted the conference recently. The recent meeting of the CLGF Executive Committee agreed that, there should be two or more exceptional bids from different regions. CLGF will also consider whether it should award the hosting of the 2017 conference to allow a longer lead in time in future.
Note that bids must be in to CLGF by 30 September 2012 at latest as indicated in the bid invitation pack (see below)
It would also be helpful to our processes if we could have an initial expression of interest by the end of August with the detailed bid in by end September. We hope that we will be able to announce the successful bid at the 2013 Commonwealth Local Government Conference in Kampala in May 2013.
