Thanks a lot to everyone who read and responded to my post on being “Young and in Gov” a couple of weeks ago. The positive response was overwhelming – it seems there are (luckily for me / the sector) plenty of young and enthusiastic local government officers out there who are willing to respond to slightly strange lonely heart adverts from women they’ve never met.
As a consequence we’ve decided to get together this month for an initial gathering, and to talk about the best way for us to develop the network.
I thought I’d give a quick update on the details of what we’ve got planned, and please get in touch if you’d like to get involved.
