The annual gathering of public finance professionals will take place again in Cardiff in November 2019. Public Finance Live Wales, will take place three weeks after the date at which the constitutional position of the UK within the EU is expected to be resolved. Against that backdrop however public finances still need to be carefully managed and scrutinised.
The Welsh public finance professional will still need to be armed with the necessary skills and information to navigate the challenges both current and in the future.
The programme for the day addresses the key areas which will shape the success of our public services, Financial Resilience and Trust, Data and Technology, People and Places; and, Talent and Skills.
The day closes with the traditional CIPFA Wales programme of evening entertainment. As ever the prestigious CIPFA Wales Public Finance Awards will represent the highlight. The ceremony will be held after the annual conference dinner. You will shortly be able to nominate colleagues and teams for these prestigious awards.
