Over 200 delegates gathered at Liverpool Town Hall on Friday 15th November 2019 for Exchange Chambers’ Annual Local Government & Social Housing Seminar.
The event, now in its 14th year, is a sector focused national conference for local authorities, private registered providers, their solicitors and insurers.
