DAPTC courses, seminars and conferences in 2020
DAPTC have postponed all
courses, conferences and seminars for now, due to the Coronavirus situation. As soon as we are able to, we hope
to get dates to our member councils, but these will be dependant on how much time remains in
2020. As a minimum, we will hope to run the Conference and the Clerks Seminar.
If there is sufficient time, we hope to provide a course for Chairmen, Budgets
and Precepts course and an update course for councillors. These courses will be
run in 2021 if there is insufficient time in 2020.
