Local devolution is not big devolution in miniature

We are in the final build up to next week's NANM share and learn event, Devolution: single or double? There is more information about the event on the NANM web site, where you can also download the outline agenda. With the combination of speakers and delegates coming we think it is shaping up to be a day of really interesting conversations and discussion.

To help get the ball rolling, Ben Lee has written a blog post, Local devolution is not big devolution in miniature, reflecting on some of the recent press coverage of the devolution debate and how it might feed in to discussions next week. Please do read, and do comment if you would like to develop any of the threads (whether or not you can make next week's event).

There are a few places left, so if you haven't booked and would like to come there is still time. See the box below for a summary of links to more information about the event and details of how to book.
