The largest and the main public sector conference in Wales once again returns to Cardiff in November 2017. The CIPFA Wales Annual Conference once again provides its successful blend of inspiring plenary sessions and streamed optional workshops. All of this is supplemented by a new and improved evening programme of entertainment which will feature the inaugural CIPFA Wales Public Finance Awards.
The conference will take place at a time when the wider constitutional developments associated with Brexit and new powers for Wales are still in development.
The need to be financially resilient and seek new ways to design and deliver public services remains. The conference will focus on how Welsh public finance leaders can lead the way and will not only examine the challenges but identify new service solutions for a digital Wales. The powerful combination of Welsh leadership, news ways of working and embracing the digital future will unlock practical solutions and inspiration in equal measure.
The conference format will incorporate all of this and will include streamed choices for delegates. All delegates attending the 2017 CIPFA Wales Annual Conference can map their own personal conference journey.
CIPFA Wales will for the first time be celebrating the success of Welsh finance practitioners and public service professionals. The ceremony for the inaugural CIPFA Wales Public Finance Awards will form part of the evening entertainment programme after the conference. You will shortly be able to nominate colleagues and teams for these prestigious awards.
Thursday 23 November 2017 is the date to join Wales public finance professionals, senior politicians and public service managers at the CIPFA Cymru Wales Annual Conference for 2017.
