APSE Full Association Meeting 2020

The Full Association meeting is an opportunity for members of the Association to discuss and debate the policy and research work of the organisation.  APSE has themed the meeting around some of the major public policy challenges that local government faces at present and some of the opportunities that arise from this.  We hope you will take the opportunity to participate in the discussions on the day.
