Another successful event - Council Tax Support, 5 July 2012
The second meeting of this year's programme was another well-received event, with Bob Trahern and Tim Savill sharing their knowledge and understanding of the impending changes with a group of around 20 members and colleagues.
The Q&A session went on for some while, and no doubt proved as valuable as the main event to those who were there.
Both speakers have agreed to make their presentations available, so here they are:
